Spend a summer day exploring the mechanical marvels along San Francisco's North Shore! See giant running steam engines, turn of the century automata, mechanical computers, an 8 foot high mechanical planetarium and more...
You'll be able to map your own route for the event and spend as much time at each location as you'd like. We encourage you to walk, bicycle or use public transport for Mechanicrawl; maps, routes and additional info are listed under Map Your Crawl.
The Long Now Museum and Store
An eight foot high mechanical planetarium, a "walking bearing", the Equation of Time Cam, a sphere of solid tungsten, a microetched language archive and more... All of these exhibits are part of the Long Now's project to build a Clock to last for 10,000 years. There will be tours, demonstrations, and a chance to meet the team who are building the Clock.
