The Black Forest Clock geeks on Facebook raved about this museum. For good reason. It tells the story of time from the beginning of time-keeping, with an emphasis on clock making in the region. Well done!

Very interesting and great value for money
Lots of great displays of clocks and time calculation. English explanations in pamphlet holders near the displays.
