Obscura Society - Coming to a Strange Place Near You

Obscura Society

As some of you already know, we have begun a new venture: a little something we’re calling the Obscura Society. 

Born of the success of Obscura Day, this real-world exploration arm of Atlas Obscura will be seeking out secret histories, unusual access, and opportunities to explore strange and overlooked places hidden all around us, all year round - and we could not be more excited about it.

COME OUT AND EXPLORE WITH US

Obscura Society Past Events

New York City today, tomorrow the world. We are starting with five regional chapters, but we are looking forward to our slow but steady takeover of the world, with help from you, our curious explorers, armed with knowledge of that one abandoned building at the edge of town and the desire to take a bunch of people out with you to investigate it.

Join one of our regional event announcement lists for first crack at upcoming explorations near you. 100% spam free, we promise.
