promoting and preserving the history of American-made clocks and watches

Join us for a fascinating trip back in time. Learn about American clock & watchmaking with particular emphasis on Connecticut, once the clock capital of the US.  The museum holds one of the largest displays of American clocks and watches in the world, over 5,500! As visitors travel through the museum’s eight galleries, these timekeeping devices chime and strike upon the hour.  Located in the historic "Federal Hill" district of Bristol, the museum is housed in an 1801 Federal-style home with a sundial garden. 


In preparation for our 2014 season, we are looking for volunteer greeters and tour guides.  Training sessions are scheduled for March and April.  Check out the listings on our calendar.  Come join our team!
