The headlining event this week is surely the über-international Western & Southern Open tennis tourney. But don’t miss horseback riding in the park, an interactive murder mystery, the Art Museum’s stash of prints, and an al fresco jazz series.

Top 5 Exhibits This Week

1. A Day In Pompeii
The next best thing to visiting the world’s most famous ruins is seeing the recovered artifacts up close and personal. The traveling exhibit A Day In Pompeii—touring archaeological treasures collected from the site of the 79 A.D. eruption of Mt. Vesuvius—is an exceptional treat indeed, as those items are rarely allowed to leave Italy. View sculpture, jewelry, and frescos, along with casts of actual victims, forever frozen in time.
