Description

The Beyer Clock and Watch Museum is a one of its kind museum and houses an extensive collection of timepieces. Horologists will marvel at the exhibition which showcases over 250 chronological instruments that date back from 1400 BC all the way to modern quartz clocks that are accurate upto a millionth of a second. The instruments are meticulously arranged according to chronology, so the collection begins from shadow sticks, sundials, oil clocks and tails off with navigational chronometers. There is a lot you can learn about man’s complex relationship with time here.
