The digital tour in the Saarland Clock Museum was made possible by the support of:


The Saarland Clock Museum was opened on November 6, 1992. It is carried out on a voluntary basis by the members of the Friends of Old Watchmaking Art e. V. operated.

The conception of the collection is to present the development of time measurement from the beginnings to the present - from the sundial to the atomic clock - and to process it in an educational manner. In addition, it is important to preserve the knowledge and art of the dying watchmaking trade.

As a place of art and culture in the Saarland, we not only organize special exhibitions but also a variety of lectures and presentations in cooperation with the adult education center.
