Ancient Roman Artifacts Preserved in Magma: Pompeii Exhibit
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 A.D. 79. 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 admission to The Franklin Institute's three floors of other interactive exhibits.
