Event Details

Please join us for a reception at The Long Now Foundation Museum & Store from 5-7pm on March 20th for Atlas Obscura Day. Several of the engineers and project staff working on the 10,000 Year Clock and Rosetta Project will be on hand to give explanations and demonstrations of artifacts in the Museum. We are walking distance from Musee Mecanique and our space in San Francisco is home to a few Atlas Obscura sites including a Longplayer listening outpost, and later prototypes of the 10,000 Year Clock.  We will have wine and nibbles for those in attendance, and our large monitor will be displaying the recently launched Long Now Locations category on Atlas Obscura.

Long Now Foundation

The Long Now Foundation is dedicated to long-term thinking, and hopes to provide counterpoint to today's "faster/cheaper" mind set and promote "slower/better" thinking. They have designed a beautiful mechanical 10,000 year clock which will be installed in a mountain top in Nevada.


Where? Fort Mason bldg A, between Greens and the MoMa Gallery

Parking is free outside the gates, or inside the Fort Mason lot will cost a dollar or two.

When? 5pm-7pm after the Musee Mecanique.


Obscura Day is an international celebration of unusual places taking place around the world on March 20, 2010.
