Pompeii: The Exhibition at the Reagan Library & Museum

Events // Pompeii: The Exhibition at the Reagan Library & Museum

Jan 6 - Jan 6

Overview // Join SLOMA for a trip back in time with Pompeii: The Exhibition at the Reagan Library & Museum in Simi Valley.

In 79 A.D., Mount Vesuvius erupted. Within 24 hours, the bustling Roman city of Pompeii lay destroyed – and perfectly preserved – under 15 feet of ash and volcanic debris. This city frozen in time has since provided historians with a glimpse into what life was like in ancient Rome.

Pompeii features over 150 authentic artifacts on loan from the renowned Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli, including colorful wall-sized frescos, gladiator armor, marble and bronze sculptures, jewelry, ancient Roman coins, maritime relics, and full body casts of the volcano’s victims. These artifacts, set in scenic depictions of their original surroundings, tell the tale of the bustling city of Pompeii, hidden from view and forgotten for centuries until its rediscovery over 250 years ago. The catastrophic power of volcanoes is also illustrated through an immersive CGI experience of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
