You are invited to attend our Shell Educators’ Preview on March 30th, featuring our newest special exhibition POMPEII: The Exhibition.

Transport back in time and examine the lives of the residents of Pompeii before and after the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius on August 24th, 79 A.D. The sudden disaster that destroyed Pompeii also preserved it and over time archaeologists have uncovered roads, buildings, paintings, mosaics, and even preserved bodies. This special exhibition features over 150 artifacts on loan from the Naples National Archaeological Museum.

As a special treat, Educators will also have an opportunity to visit BODY WORLDS & The Cycle of Life –  this exhibit showcases the breathtaking complexity, resilience, and vulnerability of the human body in distress, disease, and optimal health.

Registration opens today, March 2nd, and closes on March 28th. Reserve your spot or purchase your guest ticket online via Eventbrite today!

*Note: Face masks are required inside the museum for anyone 10 years old and older. You can find all of the measures that we are implementing on our Health & Safety page.
