American Clock & Watch Museum/en
American Clock & Watch Museum
The museum is located in a complex including the historic Miles Lewis residence, the partially relocated historic 1728 Barnes homestead, and a modern extension wing in the town of Bristol, Connecticut, the hometown of the former Ingraham Clock Company. Bristol is located North of Interstate Highway 84, about 30 minutes west of Hartford CT or two hours from New York City.
The exhibits include clocks (and some watches) from all periods and countries, but the focus of the exhibits is clearly on American clocks.
