The clock museum is in the historic Vienna centre. It is a four story building with about 3 rooms and 100 clocks in each floor. Very interesting clocks. For children and adults. The written descriptions are in German and English. The staff, on the other hand, is awful. First, they speak only German. Two, they are looking at your very... More

This museum has lots of clocks of all sizes and shapes. Small museum, located on 3 floors. Took about 1/2 hour to go through the museum and see the various clocks. Good museum for the price. I believe there was a discount for Vienna card holders.

I really like clocks so took up the opportunity to visit the clock museum on my holiday to Vienna. Was told on entering that all the clocks would go off on the hour, so was disappointed that we didn't hear a single one! Museum consists of three floors with clocks from different times on each floor, with the top floor... More

Ok, I will write just excellent, and just to clarify, that if you don't like watches or clocks, don't visit chaps. The ones who like these small piece s of art, I will strongly suggest you to visit. Amazing variety from the first clocks to modern.... Found some watches never seen before. Unfortunately there is no guide available, but you... More

Compared to other museums in Vienna this is a rather small. It has 3 floors with lots of stairs. Each floor has a few rooms with clocks. Some of the information that you can read on the wall is helpful. We were especially interested in seeing how large clocks in church towers operate. There were clocks smaller than a thimble... More

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.
