The Essential Guide To Secret Museums

Gabinetto Segreto,(Secret Museum), Venice, Italy, contains erotica found while digging in the ruins of Pompeii. Pictured: "Venus Kallipygos," or "Venus with the lovely ass"

Pompeii - this is actually a cast of the void left by a person who was unfortunately in the wrong place at the wrong time when Mt. Vesuvius erupted that fateful day... Horrifying, and I cannot imagine the terror.
