Welcome to Pompeii

Welcome to this mobile site of the exhibition Pompeii presented by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

 

To enhance your visit of the exhibition, we have made all the wall labels and panels available to you on this site.  

 

The exhibition Pompeii is organized in partnership by the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, in collaboration with the Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli and the Soprintendenza Pompei.

 

Experience daily life in this prosperous town as it was before that fateful day on August 24, 79 A.D., when Vesuvius erupted, burying this jewel of Antiquity in metres of ash and creating a time capsule for the future. 

 

Enjoy your visit!
