Was so special to visit as when I was a kid my mum volunteered at the museum before it moved to the basin. Have not been back now for 41 years! Loved seeing some of the old clocks that brought me such delight as a child. Fascinating place for all ages.

One of the front of house ladies gave us a tour of all the clocks. It was fascinating to see how things worked and to hear some of the stories of where the clocks came from.

A lot of very interesting clocks that you won't see elsewhere in NZ. We spent between an hour and a half and two hours there.

We visited the museum on a Sunday afternoon, it was quiet which was nice, allowing us to browse the collection peacefully. The collection had clocks from all-over the world which made it super impressive! Our tour guide, Joey, was very friendly and super knowledgeable. She taught us about the history of clocks and how they progressed and improved over the years.
Would recommend!
