Pompeii Life in a Roman Town 79CE

The National Museum of Singapore is hosting an “Pompeii: Life in a Roman Town 79CE” to give you a glimpse on how it was in the last moments of Pompeii. From their website

In 79CE, the cosmopolitan city of Pompeii and much of its surrounding area were buried under volcanic ash and pumice following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in southern Italy. It was not until the mid-18th century that this city was slowly revealed to the world through archaeological excavations.

Pompeii was a bustling and prosperous Roman town with around 20,000 inhabitants at the time of its destruction. Its strategic location, mild climate and fertile soil provided the impetus to the productive agricultural industry as well as the thriving fishing and shipping industries.

Please note: The free admission policy is only on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Refer to the ad for exact dates. Admission is chargeable on other days.
