    Expand Your Mind - Back in Time to the Cataclysm of Pompeii



    Begin the experience with a champagne brunch in the Pompeian Room of the Doheny Mansion where Dr. Jane Crawford, of the Mount’s history department, will give us some background on Pompeii and prepare us to maximize our appreciation of the exhibit at the California Science Center.

    The exhibit will take us back to 79 A.D. when Pompeii vanished beneath thick layers of volcanic ash left by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Pompeii: The Exibition features over 150 precious artifacts from the Naples Archaeological Museum in Italy which offer a glimpse into the opulent lifestyle and tragic end of this ancient Roman society forgotten for centuries until its rediscovery 250 years ago. Through artifacts, multimedia experiences, and hands-on science exhibits, we will learn about archeology, volcanology, and Roman engineering while exploring the ancient civilization of Pompeii.

    Champagne Brunch: 10 a.m. in the Pompeian Room in the Doheny Mansion.
    Tour: On your own, drive to the nearby California Science Center for our 12:15 p.m. self-guided tour of Pompeii: The Exhibit. Maps will be provided.

    Tickets for the brunch and exhibit are:

    Adult - $40.00 per person                  Youth (4-17 years) $37.00 per person
