The museum is housed in a beautiful house, in 6 rooms. You can learn about the first types of time keeping and then see more and more complex classical clocks, some being truly artistic works.

A nice museum, in a small but chic building. Loads of old clocks and history, but also nice tehnology applied. A short video projection over a room decor, and Audiovisual aids for how old mechanism work. The kids (4 & 7) loved the experience.

It's the kind of museum where you have to pay the guide in order to understand and admire the pieces there. It's 10 lei and it taxes about 1h. Otherwise, indeed it takes 10 minutes just to see some time pieces. The foto is extra,...More

Well, the price of the ticket is cheap, BUT you can't take photos because you need to pay an EXTRA fee which is 25 lei/ron (It doesn't even mention it at the entry which annoyed me so much), and also it's not that big the...More
