Pompeii: Stories from an Eruption

Aviva and I went to the “Pompeii: Stories from an Eruption” exhibit at the Field Museum. This was a very good exhibit (even if visting it on the Saturday after Thanksgiving may not have been good timing). It was very very busy – there was some crowd control but not too much, and the staff only spoke up if someone did something wrong, not giving much in the way of instructions.The exhibit itself was very interesting – there were two full rooms of frescoes and some smaller fragments included. There were at least three full sculptures, on in bronze the rest marbles. And there was the obligatory “volcanoes are dangerous, could this happen again” displays.
