The Beyer Clock and Watch Museum.

The exhibition comprises some 500 pieces from all fields of chronology, which are examined in technical and scientific terms as well as from an art-history point of view. It recounts the complete history of timekeeping from 1400 BC to the present day. The exhibition comprises rare and precious exhibits such as shadow sticks, sundials, oil-lamp clocks, hourglasses, water clocks, grandfather clocks, table clocks, pocket watches, wrist-watches and scientific instruments for timekeeping and marine navigation. Historical masterpieces that are rarely set running because of their fragile mechanics come to life in enthralling video clips.
