Time Travel Museum

November 5th, 1955 is the date time travel was invented. And yet scientists have recently discovered time travel has been with us for a long time. One piece of evidence can be found HERE.

These time travel devices come in many shapes and sizes. Each have their own special abilities. Would you like to learn more about the technology and science of Time Travel? Then good news!

The European Time Travel Institute (TETTI) is finishing construction on their Time Travel Museum. Scheduled to be open to the public fall of 2017.

Several scientists have already been scheduled to field Q&A session and offer brief demonstrations.
Best of all, the museum will be filled with displays of all Time Travel machines; both real and ones featured in films.

Examples of a few of the displays follow:

Name: Flying Delorean
History: Created by Doctor Brown to keep tabs on the progress of man.
Ease of Use: Average difficulty, knowledge of setting clocks and the ability to drive a car.
Special Features: Equipped with a hover-conversion and fuelled by garbage.
First Appearance: Back to the Future - Summer 1985
Quote: "The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?" - Doctor Brown

Name: Time Machine
History: To discover how mankind will evolve, George creates a time machine.
Ease of Use: High - Move lever forward to go forward in time and backward to go backwards.
Special Features: Can watch the passage of time as you travel.
First Appearance: The Time Machine, written by H.G. Wells 1895
Quote: "If that machine can do what you say it can do, destroy it, George! Destroy it before it destroys you!" - Filby

Name: Time Bubble
History: Used in the distant future (31st century) by a Legion of Super Heroes to travel back and forth to the 21st century (and other eras).

Name: Omni
History: When history goes wrong, it's Phineas Boggs job to correct things.
Ease of Use: High - Simply set the location and time and press a button.
Special Features: Indicates when history is wrong, and when it has been corrected. Travels in location as well as time.
First Appearance: Voyagers TV series - 1982
Quote: "We travel through time, to help history along, give it a push where it's needed." - Phineas Bogg

Name: Phone Booth Time Machine
History: Used by Bill & Ted to acquire personages from history to help pass their history exam.
Ease of Use: Above Average. Can be used by a couple of nit-wits.
Special Features: Can be used for magic tricks. Also travels in location as well as time.
First Appearance: Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Summer - 1989
Quote: "Gentlemen... we're history." - Rufus

Name: HMS Bounty

Quote: You're going to try time travelling in this rustbucket?

Name: Uncle Rico's Time Machine
History: Purchased by Uncle Rico from the Internet
Ease of Use: Impossible. Has yet to function properly.
Special Features: Destroys your ability to have children.
First Appearance: Napoleon Dynamite - 2004
Quote: "It's a piece of crap, it doesn't work!" - Napoleon Dynamite

  1. Hi, Jeffrey! It's exciting to discover clues that hint of time travel. I would love to visit the Time Travel Museum. My favorite time machine is the old fashioned one envisioned by H.G. Wells. You failed to mention another groovy time travel machine, the one in Stewie Griffin's room.

    Happy Thursday, good buddy Jeffrey!

    1. I have to admit, I don't think I'm familiar with that one. I will have to look it up. But it's possible it will be included in the Time Travel Museum. These are just a few samples. The Time Tunnel was another time machine but I didn't see it listed.

  2. I'll admit to being a tad skeptical, but the idea of time travel sure is fascinating, Who wouldn't want to try it? ☺ My vote goes to the DeLorean. Loved Back to the Future! I remember the H.G. Wells machine being featured on an episode of The Big Bang Theory. The guys bought it and hauled it all the way upstairs. Funny2

    1. I think I remember that episode. It was a real hoot. As for being sceptical, I can understand that. Think of how much damage could be done if you knew how to time travel?
      PS - Sorry it's taken me almost a year to reply to this comment. But you probably won't notice anyway, if my plan works, I will have my own operating Time Travel Machine.

    2. Ha! Caught me using American spelling. (Too much exposure to American reading material, but that's no excuse. I'm so ashamed...)
      I see you went with the Canadian/British. ☺ Yes, I'm definitely sCeptical and think with horror on the very idea of people messing up the space-time continuum.
      Let me know when your machine arrives.

    3. It already arrived next April. ;)

  3. The Bird of Prey of course, but I have a soft spot for Bill and Ted's elevator. Rufus!

    1. My personal favourite is the Tardis. But I'd love to be on that Bird of Prey.

  4. Hi Jeffrey - fascinating ... I prefer the Google one - I shouldn't I know - it's the aesthetics of it ...

    One of our major scientists - Brian Cox (Physicist) - and Dara O'Briain (comedian and tv presenter) presented a programme on time ... I sort of understood it!!! But I do enjoy the learning bits ...

    All fascinating stuff - I need to live for a couple of million years and then I might understand ... I suspect my days are not that long to go - a few decades if I'm lucky .. but not long enough to find out about time travel!

    Cheers Hilary

    1. If only you had a time machine, you could transport to the future to learn about time travel and send the information back in time to help you understand time travel better. Then you could build a time machine to travel into the future too..... D'oh! That's a paradox isn't it?

  5. I find it interesting in so many movies, phone booths are used for time travel. It does look like it could be a time travel device, I suppose...although if one appeared now, many people would say, "Why is there a phone booth on this sidewalk?!"

    1. Oddly, that's the same thing they say about the Tardis in Europe too. Police boxes used to be everywhere, now they are unheard of.

  6. Time travel is of interest to me. I'd go to the museum if I were in the neighborhood, but I think there is little likelihood that I'll ever be in Cardiff, Wales.

    My favorite has to be the Delorean. Love the garbage as fuel engine.

    1. Obviously, I love time travel too. Every November I host a Back to the Future party.
      I'm such a nerd.

  7. Time travel is awesome! It would be neat to check out the Time Travel Museum.

    My favorite time travel machine is by far the Delorean!

    I've never seen the movie but isn't there a Hot Tub Time Machine?

    1. Ahh yes, I believe there is. I'm sure that'll be somewhere in the museum.

  8. Delorean wins for me any day as the best one. If I could time travel I'd get the lottery numbers and run away haha

    1. The Delorean seems to be everyone's favourite. But is it pre or post hover conversion? Everyone seems to forget how much trouble the Delorean caused everyone. Still, it's one of my favourites too. :)
