The American Clock & Watch Museum is located at 100 Maple Street, Bristol, Connecticut. The museum houses one of the largest collections of American clocks and watches in the world with approximately 6,000 timepieces in its collection. As visitors travel through the museum’s eight galleries, many timekeeping devices chime and strike upon the hour.  Located in the historic “Federal Hill” district of Bristol, the museum is housed in an 1801 Federal-style home with a sundial garden that is meticulously maintained by the members of the Bristol Garden Club.
