Timexpo: Inside a brass mill built in 1854, the Timex Museum traces the story of the famous watch brand and its impact on modern timekeeping, starting from its inception as Waterbury Clock Company in 1854. Here, visitors learn about the heritage of Timex through modern and interactive exhibits and discover how the watch company turned Waterbury into a landmark.

  • Size: three floors of time-related exhibits
  • Eye Catcher: a vast collection of clocks and pocket watches, all manufactured in Waterbury since the mid-1800s, when everyone stopped wearing their wall clocks on neck chains
  • Permanent Mainstay: an exhibit focusing on the ever-popular vintage Timex torture-test ads and their famous slogan "Takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'"
  • Don't Miss: though seemingly unrelated to timepieces, the Time Tunnel archaeology exhibit is based on discoveries of explorer Thor Heyerdahl, who found interesting and peculiar connections between seemingly disparate cultures
  • Hidden Gem: the company's iconic Mickey Mouse watches are highlighted in their own exhibit
  • Hands-On Experiments: guests can decorate and assemble a working clock or participate in an assembly line and create a paper wristwatch
  • Pro Tip: at the museum store, you can not only buy Timex watches, but also get your watch battery or strap replaced
  • While You?re in the Neighborhood: the American Clock & Watch Museum in nearby Bristol also keeps a collection of pieces from Waterbury Clock Company

In the 1920s, Thomas Lamb was the man to see if you were planning to build a theater. The designer of everything from the Orpheum in Boston to Madison Square Garden in New York, his designs fanned the flames of vaudeville and inspired so much admiration in silent-film stars that they almost spoke. So when theater impresario Sylvester Z. Poli decided to built his Palace Theater, he turned to the best. Lamb designed the Palace in a Second Renaissance Revival style, mixing Greek, Roman, Arabic, and Federal motifs into the grand lobby and domed auditorium. With such a regal foundation, Poli couldn't keep his wallet closed when decorating, and spent $1 million dressing the Theater for a king. And so well outfitted, the Theater had a good run, operating with force until 1987. Then the lights on the marquee went out, staying dark for the next 18 years. But with such undeniable beauty, it couldn't stay dark forever. A three-year, $30 million restoration and expansion brought the Palace into the 21st century, turning it into a 90,000-square-foot historical landmark. Yet now, as in the 1920s, the Theater's mission remains the same: to serve as an artistic, cultural, educational, and economic catalyst for the community.
