If you are keen on clocks and watch's, or even if you're not, a great place to spend a few minutes. Educational and entertaining.

An interesting collection of timepieces

A lot of very interesting clocks that you won't see elsewhere in NZ. We spent between an hour and a half and two hours there.

We visited the museum on a Sunday afternoon, it was quiet which was nice, allowing us to browse the collection peacefully. The collection had clocks from all-over the world which made it super impressive! Our tour guide, Joey, was very friendly and super knowledgeable. She taught us about the history of clocks and how they progressed and improved over the years.
Would recommend!

This has to be the greatest small museum in NZ. Quirky and fascinating. Excellent value. If you are in the area, go and spend some time there, you won't regret a second of it.

What a cool place

We really enjoyed our visit to this museum. We were given an intro brief which was fantastic - we aren't normally too interested in these but it was worthwhile. We spent about an hour looking at all the clocks and reminiscing over childhood clocks

The place where time stands still

A fine history of time pieces. Friendly staff provided an introduction and demonstration. Particularly liked the two mirror clocks, his and hers pictures with moving eyes, there is a story to those... And checkout the hickory linear clock with the mouse as a pointer.

Our family, including grand-kids 6 and 8, really enjoyed this museum. The tour guide was very informative and interesting. Every kind of clock you can imagine can be found here.

Small but delightful

After the most courteous of welcomes at reception, we were shown round this clock museum by "Jenny".

Our guide was most skilled in imparting just enough information and activating a number of clocks to hold our interest and attention. Nothing worse than too much information. Jenny got it just right.

For us older ones, it was a trip down memory land with many a "I remember ..... "

Fascinating stuff and an insight into the patience and precision that lies behind horlology.

Well worth a visit. I intend to return.
