10 great things to do in Fremantle this week

1. Escape from Pompeii

A wonderful International exhibition- ‘Escape from Pompeii- the untold Roman rescue’ details the dramatic rescue attempt following the eruption of Mt Vesuvius
and the destruction of Pompeii in 79 AD.
Very few people know that the Roman Navy attempted to evacuate people affected by the eruption.
The Roman Navy had a hugely important role in the success of the Roman Empire.
Incredible display of household objects, rare artefacts and five ‘body casts’ of victims.
There will be a number of great school holiday events associated with this exhibition.

Come along to the ‘Escape from Pompeii’ exhibition and watch a toga draping and Roman Woman’s costume demonstration.
