We run a B & B in bristol, CT and our guests often come in specifically to see this museum. Clock lovers are very impressed by the size and quality of their clock collection.
We visited the American Clock and Watch Museum and were impressed. The outside appearance doesn't really suggest how large the museum actually is. The collection of primarily clocks and watches was vast. We have previously been to the National Watch and Clock Museum in Columbia, Pennsylvania, and I would say that the ACWM covers the same breadth in a smaller... More
I've been here quite a few times and this place is nothing short of amazing! The people here really know clocks and other timepieces and are happy to share that knowledge with you!, not very far from Hartford, CT. The Collection is huge-all sorts of timepieces from timeclocks to watches to a clock mounted to the outside wall that goes... More
It doesn't look very much from the outside but once I stepped inside the doors I immediately knew that the effort to get there was well worth it. I received a warm greeting from Rose who clearly loves what she does and wants her visitors to thoroughly enjoy the experience. Set in an old clapboard Colonial Style house with huge... More
We were pleasantly surprised on the large collection of American clocks and watches. The employees were very friendly and informative . If you have a thing for clocks it's a must see!

The 8-10 rooms were packed with examples of almost every kind of historic clock imaginable. The entrance price was affordable ($5-6), and the staff person on duty gave a warm introduction and was eager to share her favorites. It's... More

I enjoyed looking at clocks and watches of all shapes, sizes and ages. There was also some detailed narration provided in addition to the personal attention offered by staff. The museum is reasonably priced and we... More
Arriving in the parking lot does not prepare you for the timeless wonders awaiting you inside this ageless work of art. We wanted to bring a gift for our Daughter, because of her love for timepieces. What we encountered left us speechless. She was beside herself with the gift and bruchure we gave her. Disney classic, History on craftsmen and... More
Besides the guided tours, the museum offers you the freedom to look at your own leisure. There are many events and changing exhibits too. Bristol's rich history as well as all aspects of clock and watches can be found here. It is very inexpensive and a perfect day trip for individuals or any size family. The outdoor sundial garden is... More
Clocks and watches stand the test of time. They truly are works of art.nwhen you step into the museum, it feels like going back in time each piece has a history to it and you can examine all the craftsmanship has going into everything there. The staff is very helpful. The clock outside does not represent what's inside. The time... More
