Antiquarium of Boscoreale


Boscoreale Antiquarium is only 3 km from Pompeii. Opened in 1991, it presents artefacts from the archaeological sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Oplontis, Stabiae, Terzigno and Boscoreale. There are findings of the local flora and fauna, a collection of objects from the ancient agricultural life, food such as the typical carbonized loafs of bread, cosmetics and health remedies. Tourists and researchers that have the chance to visit this extraordinary site will be able to understand better the daily life at the time before the 79 A.D. eruption in the Vesuvian area.

‘Human beings and the environment in the Vesuvian territory’ is the title suggested by the Antiquarium that refers to a didactic exposition showing findings, plaster casts, images and impressive reconstructions of how things were at Roman times made thanks to the support of modern technologies.
