Herculaneum is completely different from Pompeii, it is only 15 acres. It was destroyed by pyroclastic flows, rather than pumice and lava therefore was not crushed down by the weight of the debris and was a Roman holiday town rather than a busy, important town. The difference is quite amazing! The mud has preserved mosaics, the wooden beams that divided the lower and upper floors of the houses and shops, and the frescos on the walls of the gymnasiums and sauna baths.
A missed visit to Herclaneum is a real pity!
