POMPEII: The Exhibition

Pittsburgh, PA 15212

Take a journey back in time to August 24, 79 A.D. when Pompeii bustled as a commercial port and strategic military and trade center.

Find yourself in a reproduced atrium inside a unique Roman villa, where you will embark on a tour through the ancient city. Over 180 artifacts on loan from the renowned Naples National Archeological Museum in Italy allow you to wind through the streets of Pompeii, exploring the forum, theater, and marketplace along the way. In a media-rich, object-based, immersive experience, learn how the people of Pompeii lived, loved, worked, worshipped, and found entertainment. See paintings, mosaics, artifacts, and even casts of bodies preserved in motion, hidden from view and forgotten for centuries until its rediscovery over 250 years ago.

Experience the eruption itself in an immersive 4D eruption theater. CGI imagery, surround sound, vibrations, and special effects bring Mount Vesuvius to life with startling reality. (This experience can be bypassed for visitors with sensitivities to strobes or sounds.)

It usually takes an average of 90 minutes to walk through POMPEII: THE EXHIBITION and experience the exhibit and artifacts.

Please note, personal flash photography and videography are not permitted in POMPEII: THE EXHIBITION.
