“Poor display”

Museo Vesuviano Giovan Battista Alfano
Ranked #22 of 102 things to do in Pompeii
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 October 2017

Display was absolutely out of context of the event. Each of the human remain was displayed on its own in different display area, exposed to the elements or in glass case.
It could have been presented in away to provide education purposes.

It is easy to wander the ancient streets of Pompeii and forget the tragic ending that befell the townspeople. Here you can see the casts of the people as they met there final time on earth.

lots of artifacts and human cast . It is sad to see the way the people died during that time. Pompei is really worth a visit just don't forget it can be crowded and remember to get a good tour guide , don't forget to ask for the map as well . I think an audioguide would have been a good option.

Such a tragic ending both for the people concerned and the site as poorly displayed through dirty glass would have been lovely to have walked inside rather than looking through the glass which clearly doesn't get cleaned

To see people in final poses and even a dog with his collar on has to touch you in some way.
It made the whole exhibit a bit more human.
