International Obscura Day Returns May 2015!

CHECK OUT OUR INTERNATIONAL LINEUP OF EVENTS TO FIND AN ADVENTURE NEAR YOU!

Obscura Day 2015 is almost here, with 160+ curious and awe-inspiring events taking place around the world on Saturday, May 30.

Obscura Day is the real-world manifestation of Atlas Obscura - a day of expeditions, back-room tours, unusual access and discovery in your hometown. More than just cataloging the curious, wondrous and overlooked places of the world, we’d like to encourage you to actually go out and explore them. Special events will be taking place at unusual locations across the globe as we highlight obscure collections, eclectic museums, hidden wonders and curiosities near and afar to show that the same sense of wonder invoked by exotic travels can be found close to home if you know where to look.
