Often missed by visitors to the Science Museum and yes it’s a tad specialist but it is a manageable gallery where you can cover every display easily.

We wondered why the taxi driver could not find this place on Commercial road. It is NOT THERE any more. Having had a fruitless search, we rang the number to be told it had moved to the Science museum. !!! Oh well the walk down the canal was nice

My husband is a clock repairman in the US and had communicated with Lord White, The Keeper of the Clocks, previously to gain help in dating a clock. When we went to London we visited the Clockmakers' Museum and my husband asked if Lord White might be available. Sadly, we were notified that Lord White only is at the museum about once a week to wind the clocks, my husband was crushed. We enjoyed looking at the marvelous clocks they had on hand and learning more history of clock-making and also the influence London had on the history of clock-making. Halfway through our self guided tour Lord White came through and found my husband. Lord White was going to be giving a special tour a little later and the staff let him know my husband has asked about him. My husband was thrilled to speak in person with Lord White. I spent a bit of time with Lady White who was equally fascinating in her knowledge of clocks! I can not offer enough praise for this little section of the Science Museum. If you are remotely interested in clocks and the history of time keeping this is a must see!

My wife and I went with friends to this Museum, now located on the 2nd Floor of the Science Museum. It is without doubt, the finest collection of watches and clocks in the world. It covers the whole spectrum from the early 1600s with examples of masters like Edward East, John Harrison, up to present day with exquisite works of all the significant members of the Guild. It was difficult not to be entranced by some of the fine engraving, so complex at such a small scale in many cases. Some of the long case clocks are masterpieces from different eras. Our visit was made even more special, as were very privileged to have the Keeper escort us around and fill us with his encyclopedic knowledge of these amazingly talented people and their peerless works. Even if the Science Museum itself is not your thing, The Clockmakers' Museum should be on everybody's top 10 things to see before you die.

Was violently raining, finished Guildhall, so grabbed a cab to the Clock museum because of proximity and weather. Was a nice hour spent!
