Pompeii the Immortal City
(April 2020) – When Mount Vesuvius erupted in A.D. 79, the city of Pompeii and its residents were frozen in time and buried under a layer of ash, erased from history until their rediscovery in 1748. The ancient Roman city is now one of the most well-known and fascinating archaeological sites in the world. Starting on June 6, the world of Pompeii comes to the Orlando Science Center, where an exhibition will transport visitors centuries back in time to the daily life of ancient Romans – what they did, how they lived and what the moment of the eruption and the minutes after it were like. Comprised of artwork, replicas of artifacts and multimedia presentations, the exhibit will also feature an interactive 360-degree experience. Science Center members get free access to the exhibit, and others can purchase tickets in advance online.
