About Retronaut

"Frozen fragment of times. This is the fascination of "Retronauting"."
- Jonathon Jones, Guardian
Retronaut - time-travel without the time-machine. We take your map of time and we tear tiny holes in it.
We scour the world's archives and museums, physical and digital, looking for material that just doesn't fit.  We're dedicated to hunting down pictures, film, sound, stories and songs that are not on our maps. Things that appear to be anachronistic - but are not.

What we find has the power to change the way you think of the past.  And it also has the power to make the past go viral.

We partner with museums, archives and brands to make their collections go viral too.
Our goal is to demonstrate that, in the words of William Faulkner:

“The past is never dead.  It is not even past”...
