The museum contains many clocks from many eras, some of them very beautiful. I felt that it would have been more interesting if there would have been more material about the internals of how the clocks worked. There were some stabs at this, but too little and too sparse.

Excellent collection of timekeeping from 15th century onwards. The sundials and pocket watches are highlights.

My husband being a collector of clocks could not get over what an amazing collection of clocks all in one place. They were presented well and in chronological order of dates. It was interesting to see how the clocks had become more sophisticated over the years.

From outside it could seem disappointing, but we found this an unusual museum, really well organised. It spreads on three floors, each one devoted to a specific period. Really interesting the first floor that refers to the Middle Ages (there is a12th century clock!!). The ticket's price is quite low, with many possible reductions.

There are three full floors of timepieces working chronologically as you move about the exhibit. The jewels of the collection are beautiful pocket watches. Worth a visit.

My wife and I enjoyed the Clock Museum. It was several floors of timepieces, pocket watches, elaborate mantle and tall case clocks...and of course cuckoo clocks! Pictures are allowed and many of the beautiful displays are certainly worth a picture. A very nice hour to spend while seeing the city center.

We visited Vienna earlier this year and one of the nice attractions we discovered was Uhrenmuseum (Clock Museum) located near Judenplatz, in one of the oldest house in Vienna, dating back to the Middle Ages (entry 6 Euro per adult). In addition to being able to visit a historical building which accommodates the museum, the collection is quite unique and... More

First of all do not go here just to have a quick look, dedicate around 2 hours. This museum has a variety of clocks, ranging from the medieval ages to our century. There are explanations on the walls or on cards for every single clock. As I have said earlier take your time, as it was my fault not to.... More
