Did you know Bristol’s the former clockmaking capital of the world? Check out the American Clock and Watch Museum to learn about American clock and watchmaking through the years with an emphasis on the industry in Connecticut! There is nowhere better to enjoy a clock museum than one housed in an 1801 Federal-style home with a sundial garden on Federal Hill. With over 5,500 clocks, watches and timepieces, and over 8 galleries, this museum is surely one of a kind! Every hour on the hour you can admire the beautiful chimes and strikes each clock sings for you.

The American Clock and Watch Museum is equipped with a small research library open to visitors. Research your own clocks and watches at your leisure. No appointment necessary during the open season, but in the winter appointments are a must. The museum also offers research by their staff for $40 for nonmembers, if you are interested in learning more about a clock or watch you may own.

From the end of March until the end of November, the museum is open from 10am until 5pm daily. In December, the museum is open from 12pm until 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
