One Day In Pompeii

Comprised of over 150 artifacts from Italy's Naples National Archaeological Museum, this exhibit provides an inside glimpse of what life was like in the ancient Roman city of Pompeii prior to the catastrophic volcanic eruption that brought it abruptly to an end. An immersive CGI experience will allow visitors to witness the eruption and see what was left in its wake.
