Villas, vines and volcanoes

Kings Cross

Come to the Museum for a week of family activities inspired by Pompeii and Herculaneum.

Help make a mosaic pavement in the Great Court, find out how the fashionable Pompeian lady had her hair done, and learn about food for rich and poor.

Try doing a bit of ancient graffiti and hear Pliny the Younger talk about what he was doing the day Vesuvius erupted.
