The Museum of Timekeeping is a registered Charity (CIO) which aims to provide inspiration in the history, science, art and craft of timekeeping- to be enjoyed by everyone.
In 1994, the collection was transferred into an independent charitable trust, to ensure both the long-term future of this unique collection and allow its enjoyment by the whole of society as a public Museum.“The Museum of Timekeeping’s mission is to inspire and promote public understanding and appreciation of the history, science, art and craft of horology and timekeeping. We achieve this by collecting, documenting, preserving, exhibiting and interpreting a collection and library, and delivering exhibitions and public and educational programmes.”The Museum of Timekeeping is currently undertaking an exciting new period of development, which aims to see the Museum extend its opening arrangements, and develop new and exciting projects.
