It was great to have discount tickets for the special exihbition. But be sure you print out the paper of gold star order confirmation with you because they don't take the confirmation information on my smart phone and insisted that I have to print...continued

It was interesting, but glad I got the discount because it wasn't $60 interesting. Was impressed by the standard of living in 79 AD and by the quickness if the total destruction

It was interesting but I expected more in the way of artifacts and history.

My husband and I enjoyed it. We had been to Pompeii many years ago and it was like we were reliving the experience. I would recommend the $6.00 audio purchase so you don't miss out on the details that are additional to the signage.

My husband and I went through the entire show, using the phone-like explanation tools. I was in a wheelchair and the exhibit was easily accessible for me. My husband got tired and had to sit once in awhile. He was grateful for the benched! As...continued

Never got to the Franklin Institute. We had 8 inches of snow here, and I'm 78 years old, and can't go out in weather like that. I looked on your web sight to find a phone number to call, but there is none. I won't be buying tickets from Goldstar...continued

Nice audiovisuals provided good information on the day in the life of a Pompeian, great video reconstructing what it was like the day of the eruption. However, the artifacts were a bit thin. I was expecting to see at least some of the mosaics,...continued

Nice exhibit. A bit too crowded but that was my only complaint.

Not huge. Neither is the venue for that matter. Very interesting & well set.

Not what I had expected. Mostly artifacts, not interactive. We enjoyed other exhibits at the museum more. Overall, Pompeii was disappointing!

One Day in Pompeii was a lovely and educational exhibit. I would highly recommend it. The Franklin Institute is a wonderful venue and worth the trip to Philadelphia.

Review from Barbara DePasquale

One day in Pompeii at the Philadelphia location was absolutely wonderful. To "see this tragedy in person" is how it felt when my husband and I walked through the exhibit. Great details and exhibits. The last room was a finally to be remembered....continued

Parts of this exhibit are amazing (especially the artifacts in the beginning), but in the end, this was a disappointing experience. Most of my complaints are based on lack of disclosure -- there are some scary parts (like fake smoke during a...continued

So easy and so much fun! Goldstar is the way to go for tickets. The whole family enjoyed the exhibit and we had a great day out.

Review from Goldstar Member

The exhibit was very short and not worth the money. If I paid full price I would have felt really ripped off. $75 to take my family for an hour's worth of viewing/reading was a real disappointment.

Review from Kathryn

The exhibit itself was good. Just good. There was a short intro movie and 4 rooms (2 very large) of artifacts that built up what everyday life was like at that time. Gladiator stuff was the coolest! There was LOTS of reading and nothing to touch,...continued
