One of the most significant exhibitions ever to come to the Arizona Science Center is opening Nov. 18. "Pompeii: The Exhibition" is a blockbuster show running through May 28, bringing to life the ill-fated Italian city that was devastated in 79 A.D. by the explosion of Mount Vesuvius. When excavators began unearthing the city in 1748, they discovered that Pompeii was surprisingly well-preserved.

This exhibition will feature more than 200 artifacts on loan mostly from the Naples National Archaeological Museum, including marble and bronze sculptures, frescoes, jewelry and mosaics, as well as body casts of victims from the explosion. Visitors will also get to experience a recreation of the disaster in the 4D theater.
