“It was different but much more than we expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

We stopped in at the clock museum and expect to see lots of clocks but what we got was an interesting tour by one the staff. She made the visit with all the information and facts about the clocks and was so friendly and happy to help.

“Unusual museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

We loved all the different clocks and timepieces - some were extremely old, others zany and whimsical, and others interesting.
