We bought a Groupon that included the Pompeii exhibit, a 3D movie and planetarium show. I was unsure if Pompeii would be ok for my 5 year old, but he was fascinated! The rest of the Science Center was a lot of fun too. We...More

This Center is oriented towards the under eighteen crowd. Honestly, it wasn't so educational for adults which surprised me.

Our kids had fun, there are a lot of exhibits that the kids enjoyed. Biggest problem here is the expense. It is very expensive to get in and most of the exhibits cost extra. Add to that, we had really long lines to get overcharged,...More

We didn't realize before we went that we would have to pay for general admission PLUS the exhibit charge - a total of $60 plus another $10 for the audio. Don't waste your money on the audio, it does nothing more than repeat the information...More

Our family group of 7 visited for the Pompeii exhibit and enjoyed it immensely. The glimpse into life back then was fascinating, and the tragedy of what happened to them was appropriately shown. The artifacts that have been preserved for 2000 years were beautiful, including...More

It i kind of pricy for the things they offer. Many technical devices were out of service. So, not really a good option to spend your money in.

Spent 2-3 hours in the Pompeii exhibit at ASC. Can't say enough about the multimedia displays, videos, reconstructions, artifacts, and absolutely amazing overall display of this historic event. Well done, lots learned and will be remembered!

Never noticed any signs so I don't see why not but they may not be allowed in the Pompeii exhibit.

At least 90 minutes. You enter as a small group, with timed entries. Don't exit unless you are ready to leave, because there is no 're-entry.
