  • The owners are a couple of lovely people who will tell you all kinds of fun and interesting things about the exhibits. The place itself is soothing to experience. The soft ticks of the possibly thousands of clocks, all set to different times so they randomly toll the hour or the half, is peaceful and calming. It's just an all around pleasant way to spend a bit of time. Even our 4 year old was fascinated.
  • Amazing collection of time pieces. Also a salt and pepper collection. A must see when your in Jefferson
  • Awesome place! Johnny is as friendly as they come. A place you MUST visit if you're passing through Jefferson!
  • Please stop by and ask for Johnny... ask him to walk you around and talk about his collection.
  • Unbelievably AWESOME grassroots museum for anyone interested in the history of time and space measurement! A must see for land surveyors!
