History Established in 2012. To raise funds, inspire creativity, and advertise our programs to the local community, most of our centers include a street-front retail store filled with unusual products, entertaining signage, and, of course, our books for sale. San Francisco's pirate supply store sells glass eyes and one-of-a-kind peglegs, 826NYC's Superhero Supply Company offers custom-fit capes, Seattle's Greenwood Space Travel Supply Company sells all your space commuting appurtenances, 826michigan's Liberty Street Robot Supply & Repair Shop specializes in must-have mechanical conveniences, there's a secret agent supply store in Chicago, the Boston Bigfoot Research Center for Sasquatch studies, and the Museum of Unnatural History is in Washington, DC.

This place is great! 😃 We were entertained for over an hour just looking at all the clever things!! I was with a ten year old and he had the best time! The cashier was hilarious and super fun!

I read about the Time Travel Mart on one of my favorite travel websites, Atlas Obscura. It's described as a convenience store for time travelers going to the past or future. It has strange little nicknacks, like robot milk, dinosaur eggs, laurel leaves, etc. The...More

I have to say that this was disappointing - and I do well know that disappointment comes out of expecting something and not finding exactly that. So maybe my expectations were too high... The shop is tiny and with no atmosphere at all, some of...More
