TRAVEL THROUGH TIME
Time measurement and mobility have always been closely linked. In the early days, journeys were often unpredictable and arduous. It was particularly important that the fall of darkness did not take travellers by surprise or that they did not miss their onward connections when using a means of transport. Taking reliable time-measuring instruments with them increased safety and even allowed them to determine their location on sea voyages. In turn, the introduction of the railway played a key role in the creation of time zones.
The collection of the Beyer Clock and Watch Museum encompasses a large number of timepieces that were used for travelling. In this special exhibition, we present a selection spanning over 370 years and take you on a journey through time. There are also travel clocks and watches on display in our permanent exhibition. If you wish, you can continue your tour there. Further information on the timekeeping devices on display is available on the tablet or from our staff.
Opening hours: Monday to Friday, 2.00 to 6.00 pm
