Pompeii: The Exhibition, is now on display at The Pacific Science Center through May 25th, 2015.

"Experience Pompeii before and after the epic eruption 2,000 years ago. Imagine the moment their world vanished and discover the miraculous artifacts unearthed since. Witness the final moments of those entombed in ash – including one of the largest collection of body casts ever presented.

In the year 79, Pompeii vanished beneath thick layers of volcanic ash left by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. But what nature destroyed, it also preserved. POMPEII: The Exhibition tells the tale of this city, hidden from view and forgotten for centuries until its rediscovery over 250 years ago. From garden frescoes and marble statues to helmets and shin guards of the day's Gladiators, coins and currency to religious altars and shrines — all set in their original surroundings — you will experience daily life in this bustling Roman city. Then, as the floors shake and the walls rumble, relive the volcano's catastrophic eruption through an immersive CGI experience, culminating in the reveal of 6 full body casts of twisted human forms, asphyxiated by extreme heat and noxious gases and forever frozen in time."
