The exhibition brings to Australia rare artefacts from sites from around the Bay of Naples: Pompeii, Herculaneum and lesser-known ones such as Baiae, Puteoli and Misenum. They give insight into the lives of sailors of the Roman fleet and to the people who lived on the Bay of Naples, considered by many Romans to be the most beautiful place on earth – that was, until the eruption.

On view are objects such as Roman Helmets, reliefs, trade goods and cast bodies. Children are offered activity packs and helmets upon arrival. For further fun, find your way to the activity centre and create helmets or wreathes, press your own coins, dress up, and produce your own puppet show.
