From the earliest clocks and clockmakers to modern day wristwatches, experience a fascinating trip in time. More than 1,500 timekeepers are on display throughout the museum's eight galleries and many chime and strike on the hour.  Learn about the important developments that lead to the growth of the clock industry in the United States, especially Western Connecticut.  Marvel at the museum's extensive collection of American-made timekeepers. View the 2014 exhibit Cultivating a Collection: Discovering Treasures.

All of the galleries are self-guided, but guided tours are available for groups with prior arrangements.   Families are encouraged to try the scavenger hunt.  The museum gift shop has a variety of time-related products as well as mechanical toys and dolls.  Family programs, clock/watch care and identification programs, and special events are scheduled throughout the year.
