The American Clock & Watch Museum will be closed
on Sunday, January 20th due to snow.

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.

The clock is ticking down to the end of 2018. On behalf of the staff and Board of Directors at the American Clock & Watch Museum, we want to thank you for all that you have helped us accomplish this year.

Let's take a look back at some of this year's highlights.
