The Leonardo is one of the most creative places in all of Salt Lake City.

And now through May you can take a step back in time to the ancient city of Pompeii. You'll experience life there before, during and after the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius.

Big Budah talked with Havilah Clarke about the exhibit and showed us some incredible artifacts from Pompeii, including some kitchen objects: a cast iron pan and colanders which were carved by hand in intricate designs. A lot of care and work went into each piece of work.

Havilah explained that this exhibit shows how the affluent people in Pompeii put their wealth on display, they didn't hide it.

Pompeii: The Exhibition runs through April 26 at The Leonardo.
