Part 2 of our inspiration-collecting trip to the California Science Center: the Pompeii exhibit. I enjoyed this exhibit very much, and found so much inspiration! It is filled with art and artifacts and gives the viewer great insight into the lifestyle of people in Pompeii before the eruption of Vesuvius. If you are interested in Pompeii from a more scientific point of view, the exhibit also features background information about volcanic eruptions and details of the 79 AD eruption of Vesuvius. You will see casts of the bodies as they were found in the ruins many centuries later. The city was so well preserved that it provided historians the most concrete information about Roman life.
