Nice experience during the Pompeii exhibition. This place is pretty expensive if you don't have a membership. So coming to Phoenix just see the Pompeii exhibition it's not worth it. Save your money and wait till the exhibit goes to your hometown.

Highly recommend the Pompaii exhibit at the Arizona Science Center. It was full of real artifacts from the city of Pompaii, Italy after it was destroyed by a volcano in 74AD. Lots of good history and video and descriptions of the lifestyles and items used...More

This museum brings in great exhibits. The Pompeii Exhibit is extremely well done and worth the visit.

Visited the Arizona Science Center for Pompeii After Dark. This event was worth the visit. Admission was only $14 prepaid online. Snack, drinks, and adult beverages were available for additional purchase. A planetarium and laser light show were also available.

We visited the Arizona Science Center for the special Pompeii exhibit currently onsite. The special feature exhibit was great, however too many small children under the age of 5 ran amuck without supervision in this exhibit, and rightfully so, as it is appropriate for families...More

We visited last week. We went with four kids ranging from 16-10. The 10 year old loved it. The two 14 year old boys found it “meh” and the 16 year girl liked it. (She loves science) We bought the tickets for Pompeii. I am...More

Never noticed any signs so I don't see why not but they may not be allowed in the Pompeii exhibit.

At least 90 minutes. You enter as a small group, with timed entries. Don't exit unless you are ready to leave, because there is no 're-entry.
