Pompeii at Union Station


On Wednesday we traveled to Union Station to go back in time to Pompeii! This exhibition features over 200 artifacts from Pompeii, giving us a glimpse into Roman life in the 1st century. The exhibition has artifacts from various areas of life – business and trade, family life, entertainment and the arts – making it possible to imagine what our own lives would have been like at that time.

The kids and parents had a good time learning about Pompeii. The 4-D show at the end of the tour was an especial favorite. Many thanks to the Union Station staff for bringing in this amazing exhibition!

Here are some of our pictures from the exhibition:
