Overview

A new international exhibition Escape from Pompeii: the Untold Roman Rescue reveals the story of the dramatic rescue attempt following one of history’s most devastating natural disasters – the eruption of Mt Vesuvius and the destruction of Pompeii in 79 AD.

While many know of the tragic eruption that buried the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, very few know that the Roman Navy attempted to evacuate people affected by the eruption or of the navy’s important role in the success of the Roman Empire.

The exhibition features rare artefacts from Pompeii, Herculaneum and the Bay of Naples in a breath-taking display which will include precious gold and jewellery, every-day household objects, as well as five haunting body casts of victims of the eruption, capturing their final moments.

It also draws on the collections of leading Italian institutions to tell the fascinating story of the Roman Navy, which dominated the Mediterranean, as no other force has ever done.

Developed in association with the Australian National Maritime Museum, Expona and Contemporanea Progetti, Escape from Pompeii: the Untold Roman Rescue is on at the WA Maritime Museum until 18 February 2018.

WA Maritime Museum has prepared special events and premiere activities, as well as exciting school holiday activities to suit the most curious, playful and reflective museum visitors.
