  • Great museum, a very good collection of clocks... A must visit for everyone passing Bristol, CT.
  • I have been researching clock and watch making for a book I'm writing on Naugatuck Valley industrial history. The essential innovation not only in clock making but in manufacturing procedures occurred in Eli Terry's workshops not far from where the museum is today. The museum has an astounding collection of clocks and watches of all kinds. They are excellently displayed and someone interested in the subject could easily spend several hours (or days) exploring and reading. While we were visiting, the clockmaker who maintains the collection came through and was so happy asnwering all of our many questions and showing us things that he was late for an appointment. The gift shop is exptensive and has specialized publication, facsimile catalogues, and plans for building your own version of various wooden clocks. If you're interested in time, this is the place.
  • The place could use some more funding and renovations. It doesn't take long to get through the thing. Don't try making a day trip out of it!
  • After checking the website for hours of operation and fees we drove all of the way up from Southern CT to have the lady just inside the door, at the desk tell us that they were not open because of a meeting there that day. We had just come from the Carousel Museum which had a sign posted on the front door "Closed for Renovation". We suggested that they update their website so people would not make a wasted trip. What a frustrating day! Another poor rating from us for lack of communication.
