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 United States.  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. 

 Winter Hours

Traditionally closed during the winter months, the Museum  will be open on the weekends, Friday through Sunday, from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., December  through the end of March.
