The museum is very small with several flights of steep stairs so not for the elderly or very young. Some fascinating clocks and the building itself is lovely and steeped in history.

The outside could do with painting, but if you like clockwork, don’t let this put you off. A lovely 3-storey building, converted into a tiny museum showing some properly, old and ornate historical clocks. I particularly liked the musical clock paintings and the display of...More

a fun thing to do when coming out of the Castle and ultra cheap. Who knew I was so interested in clocks? Loved the history and tech involved in such ancient times.

Perhaps the best thing about this museum is that it is housed in a gorgeous, Baroque burgher's house from the 1760s. It is one of few surviving houses from the former Jewish quarter, which was bulldozed by the Communist regime. The collection itself is dedicated...More

If you're walking from the castle to the old town, stop in and have a look. They have a collection of about 200 clocks and watches, some dating back to the late 17th century. Most the clocks didn't work, and don't expect to spend more...More

A magic place where any Harry Potter film could be shot, a beautiful building full opposite St. Martin's Coronation Cathedral and at the footstep of the castle

This tiny building is opposite the cathedral so you need to walk under the bridge to come to it. Or if you are visiting the castle you can walk down from the castle toward the town. The building has its name - House at the...More

The museum has three rooms spread over three floors. It has an interesting range of clock types, designs, movements, and age. Some information is provided about the clocks, but it is limited. It would be great to know more about what they have on display....More

It is good if you walk to the castle but not to do random. The only positive thing is the price. It is a select collection of clocks. None are working so you only look at machines. Nothing exciting.
