  • The museum was eerily quiet when I was there, but it's a very high-end museum with red carpets and polished brass. It also features amazing examples of the world's finest watches, clocks, and automata. The technical marvels are simply stunning.
  • By far the best luxury museum. A fantastic historic collection of the most exquisite watches beautifully positioned with a great audible talk through. If you love watches and the history of watches you'll love this museum. It was incredible to see the multiple functions watches had in the past
