re: Time Capsules


A Time Capsule is a sealed container holding artifacts of social and scientific interest and everyday use, with pictures, everyday objects, films, recordings and descriptions of contemporary civilization, to be opened in the distant future. A capsule is often prepared to commemorate a notable event, such as a World«s Fair or the landing on the moon. It is generally buried in the ground. Time Capsules continue in a custom practiced in ancient Egypt and Babylon, where inscriptions and statuettes were sealed into temple foundations.

In the exhibition area is an actual time capsule to be opened in the 21st Century as well as video and text documentation about time capsule preparation, burials, ceremonies, etc.
