“Broad collection of wonderful time pieces!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2017

This stop was accidental. We were looking for a lunch spot and saw it. Vast collection of clocks and time keeping devices on display from cuckoo clocks to sofa sized steam punk contraptions. This is worth an hour of your time.

“As we are into Time and honoured skills of the past”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2017

What a great place to be lost in Time from a private collection and added pieces to see the wonders of creative time. We also added some input into this amazing gallery as my GGGGgrandfather was a famous pocket watch maker from London.

I would never have believed there could be such a huge variety of clocks and watches. It certainly pays to leave plenty of time to go round this museum as there are all sorts of treasures to discover.

This museum has lots of interesting exhibits and the guided tour provided with entry price is excellent. You will know a lot more about the history and development of clocks after visiting this museum. Well worth a visit
