University of Austin Places Time Capsule

In September 2005, the University of Texas, Austin dedicated one of our bolted time capsules. This U Texas Austin Bolted Time Capsule measured 12?x12?x24? (our Architect model). The photos show the U Texas Austin Bolted Time Capsule buried under the cement area. This is a special order item and takes 4 weeks plus shipping time to make. If you need the same size in a simpler design (up to 75 years) choose the Neptune 12x12x24" shown here. That model comes in a packaged configuration, too.

How Public Should the Dedication Be?

Whether it’s a social media blitz or a private invitation-only affair should be your choice.

Size of Time Capsule: Is it Big Enough?

Another big decision to make is how large you want the capsule to be. This University of Texas (Austin) bolted time capsule measured 12 x 12 x 24?. The size fits hundreds of papers and other items inside. Hundreds. And I bet the maintenance crew was glad the U Texas Austin Bolted Time Capsule wasn’t much bigger. It weighs about 70 lbs!

If you really wonder how much space is in any time capsule box, make a mockup box yourself from cardboard. Measure it out, tape it together, and see how much it will hold. If it fills up quickly, you’ll need a larger container. Be sure to allow for moving it around from place to place. Time Capsules can be heavy and will be even heavier with your contents inside.
