Around mid-morning on August 24, 79 A.D., Mount Vesuvius erupted.  Molten rock and pumice were expelled from the volcano at a rate of 1.5 million tons per second.  Rocks and volcanic ash filled the atmosphere, turning day into night.  Within 24 hours, the Roman city of Pompeii lay destroyed – and perfectly preserved – under 15 feet of ash and volcanic debris.  Now come experience both the splendor of Ancient Rome when Pompeii bustled as a commercial port and strategic military and trading city and the horror and aftermath of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum’s all new exhibition, Pompeii.
