« Rescuing Pompeii ! », the booklet where you are the hero…

Throughout the duration of the temporary exhibition « Pompeii, a forgotten story » (April 6 – October 6, 2019), 7-12 years old are invited to rescue Pompeii thanks to a children booklet conceived as a « booklet where you are the hero ».
From Miseno to Pompeii, alongside the Roman military fleet and its admiral, children hop on one of the 12 ships that are about to leave the port to rescue the last inhabitants of the city. As they sail to Pompeii, they learn more about the military navy, trade and cultural exchanges, Pompeian daily life and archaeological excavations.

Booklet available in French or English delivered free of charge to children at the ticket counter.
