    The National Watch and Clock Museum unquestionably is the most comprehensive museum in the western hemisphere dedicated to the history of time, timekeeping and timekeepers. While it is a “mekka” for clock and watch enthusiasts, it is a also a great place for a family outing with everything from toddlers to teenagers. There are litterally thousands of watches and clocks on display, with interactice exhibits explaining how they work, their history and the role of timekeeping in society. They also host many groups of home schooled students.The National Watch and CLock Museum is an accredited museum by the AAM, a rare distinction for an institution of this size, which attests to its discipline in following approriate guidelines in matters of conservation, collection management and scholarship. It is operated by the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (a 501c3 not-for-profit educational organisation) and shares a campus in Columbia PA with with the National Watch and Clock Library, the NAWCC School of Horology and the NAWCC administrative and publishing offices.The only other comparable museum in the USA is the American Clock and Watch Museum in Bristol CT but its focus is more on Connecticut clockmaking history.

    Exhibits are many and varied. Not a “thrill a minute” attraction, but very interesting and enjoyable. Well done and worth a visit.

    It’s not the most exciting place in the world, but their selection and displays of clocks is pretty amazing. I’d recommend it for anyone who appreciates detailed craftsmanship – I had no idea what it took to create clocks, and how long people have been doing it. The museum is a lot bigger than it looks outside too. Definitely worth the price of admission for me.
