Do not understand the bad reviews about this museum.... It offers exactly what it is meant to offer... Of course to appreciate it you must be passionate in watches. And what is better than having a Patek on your wrist?!?!?! Definitively it worths a visit!

This place is a must see as the history is amazing. The watch making in this town is something you need to experience and there is not better place to get that feeling

There are a lot of watches and clocks! Different sizes, times, countries, decorations and owners. My wife and me spent an hour with pleasure. However children were boring (but iPad helped ;))

Once I found it, tucked away in side street on other side of market, it was great, 4 floors of exhibits beautifully displayed in glass cases, top floor, history of Patek, Phiippe firm, next 2 watches and enamel jewellery throughout the centuries. Hushed tones with besuited men watching, gives it an almost reverent feel. Some cases had English notices, others... More

Our expectations were not high as we thought, after you have seen one watch you have seen them all, but there was display after display of wonderful watches from the past few centuries in enamel and jewels. We could have spent all day there if our legs could have supported us!

Date of visit: 22 May 2015 Time of visit: 15:04 hour It's 10 Swiss Franc to enter the museum. The museum is very small, there are four floors, two floors of watches and a floor with old wooden machines (it's only one small room) and disappointingly the video in the auditorium is in French. They obviously don't welcome non French... More

If you are into watches this is a one of a kind museum. It has a enormous collection of antique PP watches with lots of history. Some of these jewellery is simply mind blowing.

A must see museum if you are into fine watches. What you will see is more of succession of time pieces that shows different types of craftmanship and finishes than the latest Patek models (those you can see in a store). It will take you a least 1 hour of your time to several hours if you are interested. We... More

I wish I had been able to spend a little longer in this remarkable museum, but closing time crept up quickly. Even if you are not enamored of fine clockwork and beautiful watches, which I'm not especially, being more of a Timex type of timekeeper, this is an amazing place. The historical context is fascinating and the artistry and craftsmanship... More

Very cool to see all the watches and to walk through history. Kind of repetitive after a while (it's all watches and small clocks) but still worth the trip.
