This is a very nice museum but I was a little disappointed that everything was written in German. The staff did make sure to give us an English booklet to go through the museum but it did not seem to follow the flow of the museum so was therefore hard to follow. There was a wide display of clocks. Not... More

My wife loved this place. I am not big on museums but it certainly had a fantastic display of clocks from all through history. You had to take a booklet if you only spoke/read English so this made it a little slower. You could easily spend a couple of hours here if you were really into clocks. Great display and... More

I visited it as a university extra activity that they offer to workers, to create your own cocco clock , and after the round, which had a lot of interesting watches and big old ones, that still work until now, some other ones so complicated for their time, really nice day

We went because all the reviews were positive but I had a few reservations. We really enjoyed it. If you don't read German, get a book in your language from the front desk. Ignore the order the book recommends unless you can figure it out - we couldn't. It worked much better for us to go through the exhibits in... More

Comprehensive collection of clock development over the years. Quizzes for both young and older children filled two hours. Fascinating mechanical musical instruments were an added bonus. Frequent guided demonstrations. Great collection of postcards in the shop.

I enjoyed myself at the museum. Even though it was rather small (3 levels) but I still took almost 3 hours to see everything! There was just so much to read and learn and see! They have free tours but you need to check the timings for the language you are comfortable in. There is a very intricate clock which... More

Great assortment of clocks. Really appreciated the booklet with quiz they gave to our children age 10 and 12. They had them totally engaged going around the museum looking for answers. Well done.

If you are in the Black Forest and like clocks then this place is great! Even for people that don't have an interest in clocks (like us), it was a very well presented museum with good information. We spent two hours there easily.
