Congratulations to Lakeisha Davis, who won four tickets to “Pompeii: The Exhibition” at the Arizona Science Center. The exhibition is on display through May 24.
Pompeii was frozen in time for more than 1,700 years, preserved by the ash from Mount Vesuvius that destroyed it on Aug. 24, 79 A.D. The exhibit includes 200 artifacts from the Naples National Archaeological Museum in Italy, including wall-sized frescoes, mosaics, sculptures, jewelry, statues and Roman coins that bring to life how Pompeii’s people lived, loved, worked, worshipped and celebrated.
Parental guidance is advised for a subtle separate section (a replica of a Pompeii brothel) that is not suitable for all ages. Admission to Pompeii (including general museum admission) is $29.95; $22.95 for ages 3-17; $7.95-$9.95 for museum members; free for ages 2 and younger. Arizona Science Center, 600 E.
