This world-famous museum is home to one of the largest and most historically significant collections of timepieces in the southern hemisphere. You will be introduced to amazing timepieces and will discover why clocks tick, why there are 24 hours in a day, why clocks go “clockwise”, how cuckoo clocks “cuckoo”, and much more. From mindboggling backwards clocks, to antique French dancing girl clocks, and even clocks that make the tea, there’s something to entertain everyone at Claphams National Clock Museum.
