POMPEII: The Exhibition

November 18, 2017 - May 28, 2018

The Arizona Science Center’s POMPEII: THE EXHIBITION examines life in Pompeii both before and after the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius on August 24, 79 A.D. POMPEII: THE EXHIBITION will begin with a dramatic video that introduces Pompeii. Guests will then journey through the ancient city, where they will encounter a Roman villa, a market, temple, theater, and baths. From there, they will witness the impact Mount Vesuvius had on this ancient city as they experience a simulated volcanic eruption in a 4D theater. The exhibition will culminate with the reveal of authentic full body casts of human forms, poignantly dramatizing the impact of the extreme heat and noxious gases that left them forever frozen in time. A small, separate section of the exhibit will feature erotic art in a replica of a Pompeii brothel. Parental discretion is advised for this portion of the exhibition, which is not suitable for all ages.

Ticket costs: $11.95 for adults and $9.95 for children (3–17). Member pricing is $9.95 for adults and $7.95 for children. General Admission is required for non-Members and is $18 for adults, $13 for children and $16 for seniors.
