See the destruction of Pompeii in full-length animation

A Day in Pompeii, a Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition, was held at Melbourne Museum from 26 June to 25 October 2009. Over 330,000 people visited the exhibition — an average of more than 2,700 per day — making it the most popular traveling exhibition ever staged by an Australian museum.

Zero One created the animation for an immersive 3D theatre installation which gave visitors a chance to feel the same drama and terror of the town's citizens long ago, and witness how a series of eruptions wiped out Pompeii over 48 hours.


  1. Went there last year and saw petrified bodies and the ruins that had been uncovered. It was much larger than I expected. You could even see the tracks of chariots in the stone streets. Mind boggling! 😧

  2. I kept thinking, "I hope some of those folks got out from the first sign of nature about to blow sky high."
    Nature is beautiful but terrible at the same time.
