Newspaper reviewers rave about Moesgaard's newly opened special exhibition on Pompeii and Herculaneum. Danish newspapers, Aarhus Stiftstidende and JP, have rewarded six stars and, thus, top marks for the exhibition. Politiken gives five out of six hearts to the exhibition.
The reviewers give these big compliments:
"Moesgaard Museum has done it again. This time with an exhibition that perfectly depicts the tragedy behind the historic natural disaster in Pompeii and Herculaneum. (...) The exhibition is touching, authentic and enlightening" ... from JP's review.
A magical time travel, writes Aarhus Stiftstidende's reviewer:
"A spectacular blast of an exhibition. The Moesgaard exhibition on the outbreak of Vesuvius in the year 79 AD is a magical time travel that masterfully mixes everyday life and enthralling drama."
In Politiken, the words are:
"Moesgaard Museum has opened a mini-edition of Pompeii and Herculaneum. With unique finds and an element of kitsch, it is a snapshot of the highly developed Roman civilization. And of the violent downfall in the year 79.
(..) If you use your imagination, it's almost like being there yourself. "
At the children's webportal, Children in the City, there is also praise for Moesgaard for having created a children's story in the exhibition, where children can literally experience Pompeii from their point of view.
