This exhibition by NEON at the Museum of Science and Industry transports guests back in time to one of nature’s most explosive moments—the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Through a collection of priceless artifacts and multimedia productions, you’ll get an in-depth look at life in Pompeii before disaster struck. The exhibit also includes immersive experiences showing holographic gladiatorial combat, a 4D theater that simulates Mount Vesuvius’s deathly impact on the ancient city and the reveal of full-body casts of human forms who perished during the volcanic event.
