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, a portion of the museum is housed in an 1801 Federal-style home with a sundial garden.
