HAMPTON, Va. - We meet local steampunk enthusiasts and get a feeling for Visions of Future Pasts, the fantastical exposition happening at the Hampton History Museum June 2-4, 2017.

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.

On our stage, it looks like a lot of fun.
