Rockville Senior Center time capsule to be exhumed this month

A time capsule buried 26 years ago at the Rockville Senior Center will be unearthed and opened on Thursday, May 13, 2021 at 5:00 PM. The odd-number anniversary wasn't the original plan in 1995; the pandemic forced the unearthing to be delayed for a year. In another nod to the "new abnormal," the time capsule exhumation will be streamed live on the internet. Register for the free Zoom viewing online. 

What objects were donated to be buried in the time capsule? Tune in to find out, and return to the year when Die Hard with a Vengeance and Batman Forever played in theaters, and Radiohead's The Bends and The Smashing Pumpkins' Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness were being snapped up at Tower Records on Rockville Pike!


  1. Tower Records was great, used to go there all the time.There was a Penguin Feather Records across from Wintergreen Plaza in 1980s also.

  2. Time capsules that are opened less than 50 years after they were entombed, should be called "Caplets". These articles are not even old enough for a grade schooler not to remember.

  3. Was a copy of the live stream video downloaded onto YouTube?
