Time travel back to the height of the Roman Empire and discover the lost city of Pompeii, which was buried under volcanic ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Bringing together over 175 naturally preserved artifacts, the Franklin Institute's One Day in Pompeii exhibit lets you experience everyday life as it was almost 2,000 years ago. Among the relics preserved by magma are full-body casts of the volcano's victims, gladiator armor, Roman coins, religious altars, wall-sized frescos, marble statues, jewelry and more. You can even experience Vesuvius' catastrophic eruption for yourself during an immersive CGI recreation, complete with shaking floors and rumbling walls. Your ticket also includes general admission to the Franklin Institute's three floors of other interactive exhibits. Learn More

I thought the exhibit was much smaller than the price warranted, but we backed up and went through it again and ended up playing in the excavation pit for about 45 minutes and met a couple of new friends, so it ended up being successful.
Meet Mamenchisaurus, (MA-men-CHEE-sore-us) the longest-necked (and most pea-headed) animal that ever lived. Get introduced to the world's largest meat-eating dinosaur skeleton.Giganotosaurus from Patagonia, 10% bigger than T' rex. See the world's largest dinosaur bone.the five-foot high backbone of the 100-ton Argentinosaurus.
Puzzle over the unicorn spike on the school-bus sized duckbilled dinosaur Tsintaosaurus (TZINT-ow-SORE-us), the two-foot long spines of the bizarre Amargasaurus, and the world's longest claw nearly two feet long, from a still-unknown Mongolian giant meat-eater.
