Small museum in the bottom of the Beyer store. Definitely worth a trip. Make sure to get the iPad that describes all the clocks and watches. Also has videos of what the clocks do when they are working. Fascinating!

Great little museum to spend an hour in, Reasonably priced, very nice exhibits so long as you are into clocks and watches, Ipad provided for information on all the clocks. Well worth a visit for watch and clock fans.

Who knew the history of clocks could be so interesting? I loved seeing the old pocket watch that had to be attached to a master clock to be synchronized every night. Very neat. The staff here is very knowledgeable and super friendly! Fun visit!
