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.

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.
