The exhibit itself was very good. However, I wish we would have been able to see the IMAX presentation on volcanoes first so that we could have understood more about them. But, since it is a timed event, that was not convenient and the next show...continued

The exhibit was not what I thought it would be. A bit on the small side. Also, the 2 films they show were very short only 3 minutes or so.It would have been better to have included more information and a longer film.

The experience was fine, the exhibit was great. HOWEVER when I tried to buy 4 tickets I could only buy 3. The I had to apply for a separate ticket and had to pay the additional charge

The One Day in Pompeii was an enriching experience that made you feel like you were actually there in Pompeii.

The whole family attended the Pompeii exhibit followed by a time spent at the Franklin Institute exhibits. The Pompeii exhibit was well done. Interesting, but not overwhelming and great for an 11 year old. The end was a bit much for the 7 year old...continued

There are two aspects to this show: the original artifacts from Pompei, and then theaudio/visual effects created by the Institute to demonstrate the power and results of the Vesuvious eruption in 79 AD Italy. I guess the AV is for the kids, the...continued

This was a really informative, outstanding exhibit. Very sad and distressing reliving the eruption and the aftermath. We knew the reality from the textbooks, but this truly brought it to life. Not to be missed!

We are retired couple with no kids, so the half price ticket was perfect. We were not into seeing the rest of the museum, which was full of school kids. We wanted to see Pompeii, and both of us had seen the "real" Pompeii. The exhibit was...continued

As far as the exhibit, it was unbelievable! The detail in the pieces found and the...continued
