  • A strange museum, the idea that you only collected your entire life. Nevertheless, it is a very nice museum because they have so many different clocks from all over the world. Also the older models, it is nice to have such a feeling we had that one in the past too. I'm glad I do not have to wind up all the clocks in the evening :-)
  • Never seen so many clocks and watches. Stunning
  • good and interesting musem. I arrived at the opening do I had a personal guided visit with the live moving clocks. It was 10$ and realy interresting. Thank
