One Day in Pompeii at The Franklin Institute
In the year 79 A.D., Pompeii vanished beneath thick layers of volcanic ash left by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Discover the tale of this city, hidden from view and forgotten for centuries until its rediscovery more than 250 years ago. See more than 150 naturally-preserved artifacts left in the magma’s merciless path, including coins, religious altars, remnants from the day’s Gladiators, full body casts and more.
Your admission to One Day in Pompeii also includes General Admission to The Franklin Institute. The Franklin Institute is Pennsylvania’s most visited museum and home to three floors of interactive science exhibits, the Fels Planetarium, 5-story tall IMAX® theater, rooftop observatory, and more. The Franklin Institute has FUN down to a science!
