The Pompejanum is a reconstruction of the Castor and Pollux villa (Casa dei Dioscuri) excavated in Pompeii. As such, it conveys an idea of the Italian lifestyle in the 1st century. This model of a Roman villa was built under King Ludwig I of Bavaria by the architect Friedrich von Gärtner from 1840-1848.
The Pompejanum suffered serious war damage, but was rebuilt in 1994. The many artefacts convey an impression of 1st century life in a Roman villa
