Here's what our visitors have had to say!

Amazing museum. It far exceeded our expectations.


Wonderful experience. Variety and quality of everything is first class.


Great collection and great family experience. Brought Grandpa down memory lane.


At the museum, I found the old wooden clock from the South Glastonbury church that I played with as a child while my father cranked the new clocks!


Wonderful time at your museum. We'll definitely return. Kathy is a great hostess and greeting-- a great asset to the museum.


Meet the Ol' Crank tour was fantastic. We learned so much.


Beautiful. Interesting. Detailed. Two eyes are not enough to see everything.
