Top ways to experience Clock Museum (Uhrenmuseum)
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
How to get there
  • Herrengasse • 4 min walk
  • Stephansplatz • 5 min walk

The history of time!
Sep 2020
This is a brilliant museum for clock lovers and historians alike. It covers hundreds of years of timepieces, not just from Austria, but with examples from all over Europe and the world. The museum is on three levels, and entry was approx 8 Euros. You need to place your bags in free lockers on the ground floor, but you are free to take as many pictures as you wish, but not with flash.

Fascinating range of clocks
Feb 2020 • Solo
A varied range of clocks ranging from the 17th century to today. There were some surprisingly small clocks - smaller than a thumb - given their clockwork mechanisms. On the other hand there were a few enormous clocks which were larger than very large Victorian wardrobes. Well worth a visit!

My son, 18 wanted to visit as he checked online, and it looked interesting for him. We went there on the first Sunday in January so it was free to get in. We were both very impressed by the collection of the clocks they have and clock tower mechanisms.

Very interesting and not popular.....
Dec 2019 • Friends
Interesting museum but doesn't have the popularity that it deserves. Very old and historical clockes. Teaches the technical work of the clockes and the technical advance thru the time. Nice for children to learn. Small place, steps in 3 floors, not sure about elevator. Ticket affordable, explanations mostly without translation. Discounts for seniors.

Nice little museum
Nov 2019
This is a really interesting little museum fairly central but off the beaten track a bit. The museum itself tells a good story of the Vienna clock and watch history and shows the extensive collection. Many of the items don’t work anymore so don’t expect to get a massive chorus on the hour. It’s definitely worth a visit.

Interesting Enough, Under an Hour
Nov 2019
Pretty cool, takes maybe 30-45 minutes to walk through. I went on the first Sunday of the month, when most museums are free. It was worth free, not sure if it’s worth paying for unless you love quirky museums (or if it’s under like 3 euros)

Very nice museum
Oct 2019 • Couples
I really enjoyed my visit to this museum. They have a lot of different types of clocks and most of them are very well preserved, even those that are 200/300 years old.

I spent around an hour and a half in it.

Unfortunately I am giving it 3 stars because

- Security guys were almost following us in every room in one of the floors.

- About half of the clocks are not working. I really enjoyed looking at the mechanisms of some of the clocks and it would be great to see others' mechanisms that were not working.

Lots to see in a small museum.
Sep 2019
We were the only tourists there when we visited. We spent a good hour exploring the three floors of clocks and watches. These range in age from very early examples to modern timepieces. The explanations on the wall are also in english. Some descriptions of the items in display cabinets are on sheets in a rack on the wall. We enjoyed our visit. The only reason it is not excellent, is that we would have liked to see some more of the clocks working, although we understand why this is probably not possible. We paid €5 each because we had a senior discount, and live in the EU.

Cosy little museum!
Aug 2019
Near the centre of Vienna, you can spend pleasant time in a small museum of old clocks. There are no a lot of tourists around. In the time of digital clocks it is nice to see also the analogue ones. Recommending!
