Our family, including grand-kids 6 and 8, really enjoyed this museum. The tour guide was very informative and interesting. Every kind of clock you can imagine can be found here.

After the most courteous of welcomes at reception, we were shown round this clock museum by "Jenny".

Our guide was most skilled in imparting just enough information and activating a number of clocks to hold our interest and attention. Nothing worse than too much information. Jenny got it just right.

For us older ones, it was a trip down memory land with many a "I remember ..... "

Fascinating stuff and an insight into the patience and precision that lies behind horlology.

Well worth a visit. I intend to return.

Friendly staff and most interesting artefacts. A real journey back in time with all manner of beautiful items. Quiz sheet available for the young ones to find various important clocks. Guided tours occur regularly, video and information boards. Small gift shop. It's not huge but much to see and wonder at.

We only had a short time to visit the Museum but I'm pleased that we did.On entry to this lovely museum were surprised when we moved from the small entrance area into a larger room that was absolutely full of clocks of all shapes, sizes and types. This is an amazing collection which is beautifully displayed with good explanation of history of clocks. It's definately worth a visit!

A really interesting collection of chronometers of all types, nationalities, and ages! A helpful guide introduced us to some of the feature pieces. $10 entry for an adult but two for one entry price if you produce a receipt from a cafe in the Town Basin!

This is well worth a visit, showing a HUGE variety of clocks and timepieces, from novelty to Cuckoo clocks, Grandfather clocks, antique carriage clocks, and the list goes on. Well worth a visit.

This museum is located at the town basin. We didn't pay to go into the museum, but we could see that there were lots of interesting time pieces there. They also sell watches there.
