Happy Obscura Day Eve!

Original image

On Saturday, the fine folks from Atlas Obscura are presenting Obscura Day, a celebration of the curious and underexplored corners of cities around the world.

So many cool things are on the schedule. Peruse rare medical photography at Cleveland's Dittrick Medical Museum. Trek out to Tesla's Wardenclyffe Laboratory in New York. Take a tour of the Cushing Brain Collection in New Haven—400 jars to explore! And possibly our favorite event is taking place in Lucas, KS: "Tour the World's Largest Collection of the World's Smallest Versions of the World's Largest Things!"

There are at least 100 other events planned in cities from Supply, NC (the Baby Doll Museum) to Manila (a moonlight row up the Pasig River).

If you're planning to attend one of the Obscura Day events, let us know how it goes!
