On one of our recent weekend adventures we traveled to Union Station to see the Pompeii Exhibit. This interactive experience brought the experience of this event to life in a way that takes it out of the usual museum realm, but makes it experiential! We were able to see some amazing artifacts, learn about the history, and interact in a visual 3-D experience that simulates the result of the pyroclastic flow from Vesuvius that came down the city center of Pompeii.

The residents thoroughly enjoyed this history experience!
