Discovery Times Square: Pompeii The Exhibit

As previously reported, the Pompeii exhibition that has been making the rounds of Australia, New Zealand and Singapore has now arrived in New York. It opened this weekend just past, and is well worth a look if you're in the area.

Reviews have now started coming out, and you can read some of them here. They are good - deservedly so, because it is a nice exhibition. For my taste, however, there is too much focus on the plastercasts of bodies, and in general I think the choice of objects is not particularly original or new. Each to their own, however.

The previous museums to host this exhibition also had useful accompanying websites (see, for example, the New Zealand version), but I can't find anything like this on the New York site.
