  • The clock Museum consists of the centres of Evora and Serpa. As I haven't seen the de Serpa, I can't make comparisons, but I strongly recommend a visit if you're there in Évora in passing. Although the space is small, it offers many clocks, all of them various social strata analog and use (pocket, kitchen, wall, wrist). It is interesting to see and hear how the various clocks mark the hours and half an hour, in particular the cuckoo clock that the receptionist was kind enough to run the clock to see the cuckoo out and sing. We can see the small parts that make up the inside of the watch and its mechanics and we can also see the tools used to build and repair. The visit becomes special when you talk to the receptionist of the space. Speak with passion about the clocks and gave us to know the origin of the popular expression "This is Mark Roskopf.". We were able to learn how he how sundials work and where to put them on the wall as well as is the ancient sailors navigated before the use of the astrolabe. Points to improve: * Map: the Museum is not properly marked on a map of Évora arranged by the tourist office. In this map, the caption appears with the number 11 gray and on location as temporary exhibition icon without number. For those who come from the tourist office, is the last street on the left side of the square. * Informational Support: I would have liked to have seen more information and infographics follow objects. Maybe a video to illustrate how watches are built would have been enlightening and would make the visit more rich.

  • In here, also have a coffee shop name Art Café that really good design and when you sit and drink somethings in here, your feeling can relax with the soft music from the window. Free Wi-Fi and toilet.
  • Very interesting it is highly recommend. The privately owned Museu Relógio has stood the test of time and has such a high number of visitors that is not public funded. Both Serpa and Évora museums are only posible due to the family hard work and dedication and watch repair experts.
