Pompeii

July 1, 2020 - September 27, 2020

Rich in centuries of history, Pompei was frozen in time after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius and is now the most extraordinary testimony of the splendors of Rome. “Pompeii,” on view at the Grand Palais, offers an impressive and spectacular showcase of the city, projecting the viewer in the hectic life of Pompei, its fatal destiny and its glorious uncovering. 

The Réunion des Musées Nationaux - Grand Palais has teamed up with the Pompeii Archaeological Site and GEDEON Programmes to create an immersive sensory and digital experience filled with high resolution images and 3D reconstructions. Impressive projections are accompanied by urban sounds and original music, full-scale frescos, and a selection of fine objects and treasures from recent excavations.
