Virtual Museum of Archaeology

The Museo Archeologico Virtuale as it is written in Italian, or the Virtual Museum of Archaeology as it is written in English, is the first of its kind in the world. All the exhibits, are based on Roman life from the ancient Roman town of Herculaneum. The museum itself stands 100 metres from the edge of the ruins.

If the name Herculaneum does not ring a bell, perhaps you remember another Roman town, destroyed and preserved in the exact same manner, by the exact same volcano. Herculaneum is a sister town to Pompeii.
