This museum was opened in 1921 and is located on three floors in a former palace which was built around the end of the 17th Century. There are around 1200 clocks, pocket watches and watches ranging from the 15th to 20th centuries. Some of the clocks are delicately painted, some are astronomical with pictures of planets and stars, some are carved from wood, some are huge grandfather clocks. You can see the original clock work from the Stephansdom's clock (as in the photo) and also find the smallest pendulum clock in the world which is the size of a thimble.
In the first district, Schulhof 2, near Judenplatz, (walk from either Stephansplatz, U1/U3 Schottentor U2 or Herrengasse U3) Its open daily except Mondays from 9 till 16:30.
