A Day in Pompeii - at Museum of Science - 1:30pm - Meeting time 1pm at Starbucks

Hello Boston Culture Lovers,

This is a Special Exhibit, admission tickets are purchased for specific time-entry.

I am setting this event to the 1:30pm admission time-entry, so please purchase your tickets for Saturday, January 14, at 1:30pm. The plan is to be in line at 1:15pm. Meeting-place is set for 1pm at Starbucks a the museum's foodcourt. (Early pre-meeting option at Starbucks at 12:30pm)

To avoid the risk of this event selling out or of being seriously delayed in admission purchase lines, I strongly recommend purchasing your tickets in advance.

The price for an adult/non-member admission is $27.

If you purchase your tickets online, you can pick them by using one of the ticket kiosks in the main lobby of the Museum.  You'll need the EXACT credit card you used for this order to pick up your tickets at one of the ticket kiosks. You may also present the order number on this receipt to an employee at the box office to retrieve your tickets.

Please plan to arrive early and to allow yourself extra time to travel to this event. You should be prepared to experience possible delays due to traffic, parking issues, and crowds.

The admission time is 1:30pm.  The plan to be in line for the exhit at 1:15pm.

I plan to arrive an hour early so we can sit down and converse a little before we start our roaming museum viewing event.  I will be at the Starbucks located at the food court (Riverside Cafe) opposite from the Museum Store at 12:30pm.

Directions & Parking

As for directions, the nearest T (train) stop is the Green Line, Science Park Station.

Also, the museum has parking, please view their web site for the rates and details.

Attendance Policy

If you reserved "yes" and fail to show-up, you are considered a "no-show!" It is really important for a successful event to have an accurate attendance count. I understand that emegencies may happen and if you had an emergency or some trouble finding the event, please let me know so I do not remove you from the group.  

Only reserve "yes" is you are definitely coming. If you are a "Maybe" please express this in the comments field or you can also reserve yourself as a "no" and leave a comments in the reservation field. 

I am looking forward in viewing this exhibit and in seeing new and familiar faces.



******* Get a glimpse of daily life in Pompeii, one of Imperial Rome's most cosmopolitan cities. Hundreds of artifacts — including body casts of the volcano's victims — bring to light the vibrancy of this bustling resort town, but the darkening skies ahead and violent sounds of Vesuvius spewing ash and debris signal imminent danger

    I had enjoyed meeting the people who attended this event and the exhibit. I am sorry for those who people who arrived a little late for they did not have the opportunity to socialize before the group splintered off in the exhibit. However, it was great that some of us continued the event at the Cambridge Side Galleria. In general, I was very happy with the event. The only complaint that I had is that there is still a very high rate of no-shows: 24 people confirmed their attendance and only 12 showed up. Regardless, I was very pleased with the event.

    Great exhibit, recommend people go if they have the chance. Joana did a wonderful job hosting the event. After the viewing a couple of us chatted in the lobby at the MOS then went across the street to the Galleria for food. It was nice to talk and get to know people from Meetup.
