    On May 6th 2012, I went to the Landesmusuem
    fuer Vorgeschichte in Halle and it is definitely worth a visit. I was especially interested in seeing
    the Pompeii exhibition. Before entering the museum I had to wait for a short
    amount of time as only groups of people were allowed in at a time. Once you
    enter the building it is very astonishing, it is four levels high and set up in
    a dim light. The exhibition was quite busy with many visitors, still there was
    enough space to look at each artifact. The exhibition described the eruption of
    the volcano Vesuv and gave a lot of background of the ancient roman life. The show
    focused on the everyday life of the Romans such as the housing, fights and
    politics. On display were videos,
    paintings, sculptures, pottery and dishes. There were also optional and free
    tour guides who were friendly and informative. The permanent exhibitions were
    on the Paleolithic period, Mesolithic period, Neolithic period and the early
    Bronze Age. Which were all set up beautifully with loads of interesting information
    but the highlight was without doubt the Pompeii exhibition. I would encourage
    everyone to visit the Landesmusuem in Halle.
