The National Watch & Clock Museum is proud to be a Blue Star Museum!

      As a Blue Star Museum, we welcome military families by offering free admission to the nation's active-duty military personnel and their families, including National Guard and Reserve, from Memorial Day through Labor Day. 


      The Museum Collection is international in scope and covers a wide variety of clocks, watches, tools, and other time-related items. Our collection ranges from nineteenth-century American clocks and watches through early English tallcase clocks, Asian timepieces from Japan and China, and timekeeping devices from Germany, France, the Netherlands, and Russia.

     Chronologically, the exhibits take you on a tour through the entire history of timekeeping technology from early non-mechanical devices to today's atomic and radio-controlled clocks. A fun and informative family-friendly experience for enthusiasts, scholars, and interested guests alike.

     Our honored guests are invited to join us in taking a fascinating trip into the world of timekeeping through exhibits, displays, and interactive learning stations comprised of over 12,000 treasures of time.

Blue Star Museums is a national, nonprofit network of military families from all ranks and services, dedicated to supporting military families. The Blue Star Museums program has partnered with the American Alliance of Museums, the Association of Art Museum Directors, the Association of Children’s Museums, the American Association of State and Local History, the Association of Science-Technology Centers, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. More than 2,000 museums across America participate in Blue Star Museums.
