Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that focuses on a romanticized notion of futurism, typically taking place either during the Victorian era (1851-1901) or maintaining similar fashion and aesthetic of the era but set in an alternate time, place, or even world.  Machinery abounds and one's imagination is fueled by fantastic steam engines and limitless possibilities.

Admission to the museum and this special exhibit is free during the Blackbeard Pirate Festival weekend.

The Hampton History Museum is located at 120 Old Hampton Lane in Downtown Hampton. There is free parking in the garage across the street from the museum. For more information call 757-727-1102.
