What nature destroyed, it also preserved. Hundreds of artifacts offer an insider's glimpse into the daily life—and tragic end—of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii. The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. buried archaeological treasures—that are now on display. Highlights include marble and bronze sculptures, jewelry, gold coins, household items, and the volcano's victims, frozen in their last moments. Daily 9 a.m-5p.m.
