When Pompeiians would head off for a journey away from family and friends, they’d offer a heartfelt valete (farewell). With the end of Pompeii: The Exhibit on Labor Day, this will be our last post on the subject as well. The Pompeii show at Discovery Times Square has been a remarkable event for visitors (and curators!) and we’ve been thrilled to be able to share this amazing archaeological discovery with you. 

However- this isn’t a final valete. We’ll revive this site for our upcoming exhibit arriving this fall. Stay tuned!

If you still haven’t seen Pompeii: The Exhibit, you still have time: we’ll be open until midnight September 2-4, and until 8pm on Labor Day.
