International Clock Museum

Recommended
Founded in 1902, this museum tells the story of how time was measured from Antiquity to the present day, with more than 3,000 valuable pieces from Switzerland or abroad. There is also a clock restoration centre, where you can see craftsmen at work, and a centre of interdisciplinary time studies. In the garden, there is a monumental set of bells by the Italian sculptor Vignando (1980).
