Its a great place if you are interested in time, watches, antique clocks, especially tall grandfather and mantle piece clocks, and the history behind them. Really enjoyed the visit!

Staff member was very helpful and gave us a short guided tour. Then we toured on our own. It was a rather quiet day with few visitors. We were able to amble about and really had a chance to read all the info on exhibits. I did fill out a survey for the museum about the visit as there were four of us and only one had been there before.(twenty years ago) Good parking at the museum.

The docent was excellent; giving us the information we needed to tour the museum, greeting us, and gathering the info from us that she needed.

Wonderful display of clocks thru the ages. I loved the ticking and chiming sounds while touring the museum. Lots of interesting information about the clock making industry in our own little corner of the world. So glad I went.

From Our Editors

American Clock & Watch Museum’s staff and visitors never have to worry about keeping track of time. Inside a Federal-style home originally built in 1801, curators display more than 1,500 clocks and watches from a collection of more than 5,500, making it one of the largest in the world behind the legion of wristwatches glued together to form Big Ben. Guest curators showcase timepieces from different eras and manufacturers, from antique clocks to art deco accessories made in the Jazz era. Visitors can admire clock maintenance in action on the first and third Friday of each month when the “Ol’ Cranks” wind more than 70 of the museum's historic items. Visitors can also learn more about their own antique treasures by consulting with the museum staff during scheduled evaluation events.
