Cincinnati Museum Center Presents A Day in Pompeii

Pompeii street24 August 79 A.D. was a pretty bad day to be a resident of Pompeii or Herculaneum.  In fact, if towns had tombstones, that day would be the R.I.P. date.  Mt. Vesuvius erupted, superheated gases raced down the mountainside scorching the countryside and yards and yards of ash were dumped on the two towns in a matter of hours. Just a little sampling of what Mother Nature can do when really irritated.  And just like that....Pompeii and Herculaneum were gone for centuries and centuries.

Then in the 1700s the discoveries started and the two towns came back to life.  Excavations since have uncovered a preservation of a day in the life of Romans...not a good day for them, but their loss is our gain.  Bodies entombed as they fell, artifacts perfectly preserved.  Now maybe an Italy trip to this UNESCO World Heritage Site isn't on your to do list, so Cincinnati Museum Center is bringing parts of Pompeii to you.  This is a VERY limited opportunity, with only four stops on the tour (the next closest are New York City and Denver, so save some miles and see it here!).

What's in the exhibit?  250 artifacts:  gold coins, jewelry, frescoes and statues.  And to tell you a bit more about the story, the exhibit includes body casts of the victims, and depending on your visit schedule, some experts providing more insight into those Roman times.  The exhibit A Day in Pompeii opened March 2nd and is open through August 12th.

This is a special admission event, so tickets are separate from the general museum tickets.

Cost:
Non-members: Adult  $19.50, Senior  $17.50,  Child  $12.50
Museum members:  Adult  $12.50,  Child $8.50

Use a Kroger receipt to get $3 off tickets.

Hours:
Sunday:  11-6
Mon-Thu: 10-5
Fri-Sat:  11-8

Location:
Cincinnati Museum Center
1301 Western Ave
Cincinnati OH 45203

We hope you don't miss this wonderful opportunity.  These type artifacts don't get out of Italy often, so you won't get many chances like this.

BLiz: Been to Pompeii as part of a 2-week whirlwind trip through Italy...A fascinating place!  The Cincinnati Museum Center is making this available without the cost of a trip to Europe.  Good localism post!

Anita, That had to be an interesting trip!  My Italian tour was limited to a few weeks on the eastern shore of Sicily during a midshipman training cruise.  Did see some of the ruins in Siracusa, did some other sightseeing, but our vision of mainland Italy was what we could see as we went through the Strait of Messina.  Wouldn't mind going back some day!

Rich, Hard to pass up an opportunity like this, we just may have to pay them a visit after the initial crowds wear down.

Jennifer, I didn't realize just how big a deal having this stop was until digging a bit further.  I think Denver is next, so NYC is probably on tap for sometime in 2013.

Beth & Richard, Must have been a great trip!  That would be surreal walking the streets and knowing that 2000 years people walked the same streets with so little changed.
