Over 150 precious artifacts on loan from the Naples National Archaeological Museum will be on show at the exhibit “Pompeii,” from now until January 4, 2015 at the California Science Center. The exhibit offers a glimpse into the opulent lifestyle and tragic end of this ancient society forgotten for centuries until its rediscovery over 250 years ago. From garden frescoes and marble statues to gladiator armors, coins and currency to religious altars and shrines – all set in their original surroundings – you can experience daily life in this once vibrant city. Through excavated artifacts, multimedia experiences, and hands-on science exhibits, guests will learn the science of archaeology, volcanology, and Roman engineering while exploring the ancient civilization of Pompeii.
