Hidden within the Beyer retail store, Uhrenmuseum Beyer Zürich features an impressive collection of watches, clocks, and other objects related to timekeeping. A leading private museum in the field of horology, the museum houses remarkable pieces that have played significant roles in the history of watchmaking, such as an early marine chronometer by Ferdinant Berthoud, a pocket watch with astronomical indications by Auch, and a rare reproduction of the planetarium by De Dondi. Over a dozen delicate and rarely operated automata find their home in the museum, where film clips display them in full motion for visitors. Peruse the walls of the museum, adorned with unique clocks from many different points in history.

  • You have to check your handbag, and they charge you to do so. I feel before they sell you the ticket that should be divulged. I would not have bought the ticket. Tiny one room of clocks and watches. T...  read more »
  • Great place to go if you are into time, watches, clocks etc. the store it is in is worth going, also free as part of the Zurich Pass. 
  • You get an iPAD to use for info on each clock by number in your own language. Few clocks are running because the do not want them to wear out which is understandable. But it would be great if the info...  read more »
  • As a watch freak myself, I've been to virtually all watch stores on the Bahnhofstrasse. No store has the service of Beyer, that's why whenever I need to buy or service a watch, or even ask questions about a watch I'm interested in, Beyer is always the top choice for me. They're extremely friendly. I even got a beautiful christmas and new year card, personally signed by the staff. Not only does everything apply which I mentioned so far, they also represent a very wide variety of brands! If you're interested in getting a watch you should definitely stop by here, you won't be disappointed.
  • Excellent museum! Not very large but has incredible pieces. The curator the day I was there gave me what was a personal tour. He clearly knows and loves watches and clocks. This is one of these little gems that is not to be missed!
  • Very Beauiful Boutique with very very nice Personal. They got realy nice Watches and they even have a watch Museum how awesome is that?!? :-)
  • Very neat collection of clocks to check out. I really like seeing the various techniques and mechanisms used to track time. An area where you could play hands on with a clock mechanism to learn about how the periodicity of pendulum can be translated into time would be neat. Or just getting to play with some toy clock internals. Neat to check out, could use some interactive displays.
  • fun little museum if you'd like to get your swiss watches on.
