This is such an interesting exhibit. Really allows your imagination to run wild to experience the volcano eruption. OMSI really gets great exhibits.

He had the most fun in the "Turbine Room." I really enjoyed the Pompeii exhibit. It was VERY crowded on Sunday which made it more tiring. A weekday would be better, if possible.

Enjoyed the interesting Pompeii exhibition. Museum is better for under 10. Come early to avoid missing out on the sub tour - they fill up fast. Scheduled times for movies and planetarium show - plan ahead.
