I am ‘quaking’ with excitement about Union Station’s upcoming exhibition! This fall, Kansas City will be the first city in the United States to host what promises to be an amazing exhibit at Union Station.


Pompeii was a city on the coast of Italy that disappeared in 79 A.D. when a volcano erupted, burying the city in over 20 feet of ash. The ash preserved the city and it has been excavated to show a truly unique glimpse into the life and death of these Ancient Romans.


Pompeii: The Exhibition will include 200 artifacts from Italy, casts of some of the deceased, and a 4D simulation of the volcanic eruption where visitors can safely experience something like the people of Pompeii did that day. Helmets, weapons, mosaics, jewelry, art and other artifacts were carefully curated and will be leaving Italy for the US for the first time.



Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii are famous now, but for a long time, not much was known about them. It’s a fascinating bit of history as it has been so mysterious and haunting. Union Station hopes to captivate visitors and transport them back to this tragic day in history.


The exhibit opens November 18 and will run until next spring. I don’t know how well little kiddos will do with this exhibit, but I think the parents and older kids will have a fun time exploring a fascinating culture and moment in time. This event is must for fans of history and archeology. I hope to see you there!
