Beginning on Saturday, March 14th, we will be closed to the public. 

We apologize for any inconvenience, but believe that it is important to follow the recommendations being made at both the city and state levels, and protect the health and safety of our staff and visitors.


Please check the Museum’s website and social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) for the most up-to-date information about the museum’s schedule.


If you would like to speak to one of our staff, please call or email them as usual.

In the meantime, stay safe and stay healthy.



Join us for our "Closed Door Opening Day"


The American Clock & Watch Museum officially opened its doors to the public in April of 1954. Every April for the past 65 years, the staff and volunteers have held a daylong celebration to welcome the public back to the museum after its winter closing. Old and new friends made their way to our door to enjoy changes to the exhibits in our galleries, view clock and watch repair or winding demonstrations, and participate in games, crafts, or scavenger hunt activities. 


This year, in an effort to uphold this long-standing tradition, we are holding a virtual Opening Day. Join us and be a part of this exciting Closed Door Opening Day! Go to our Facebook page to see all of our videos and activities!
