The exhibit was really well-done. There was a short film that tried to convey the horror of the day Mt. Vesuvius erupted. There was a room with (casts of) actual remains of people found under the layer of ash. One of our favorite features: they did some traffic control on entry, so the room you were in was never too crowded.
Our final judgement: it’s kind of overpriced ($26 each!). This might be a problem of perspective, though – Becky’s been to the real Pompeii, and it would be hard to live up to that. For my part, I found it fascinating and educational, but the ticket cost is still pretty high.
