There are many clocks! To get the most of this you need to read the text.

I assume this got very popular after being featured in the 2017 new years concert TV show. It is a beautiful and different museum but you really do need to be interested in clocks... read more

It is a beautiful and different museum but you really do need to be interested in clocks and / or their history as well as read the text and booklets in the different rooms - if not you will simply walk up 3...

Very interesting to see some amazing clocks throughout time. I would have loved to see more of them actually working though. Only a small number of old mechanical clocks were actually ticking away.

Large collection of clocks of every kind, across three floors. From tiny pocket watches to giant grandfather clocks, this museum has it all! Very good visit - plenty of interesting photo opportunities and you'll discover types of clocks you didn't know existed, along with clocks with more dials than you can count on your fingers!

Excellent collection. Must visit for anyone connected to clocks in any way. The collection of astronomical clocks is just awesome. Austria had some very very skilled clock makers which were totally hidden to the outside world. The collection of super miniature table clocks is just breathtaking and also the paintings with clocks integrated in them was very very innovative. Would... More

The complete history of time pieces with particular reference to Vienna's involvement. Three exhibitions covering three eras on three floors. I have never seen so many clocks in one place, many of them priceless. If anything, there is too much to see; but there will always be some interest for everyone. Greatly recommended,

If you are into old clocks or the history of clocks this is the place for you. It is small spread over several floors and full of clocks. There is no elevator and the staircase is spiral. I am not a clock person, but I still enjoyed it.

I have been here twice, once on my own and then I took my family a few weeks later. I really enjoyed it, and watching the progression of timepiece creation through the impressive collection is wonderful. There is information on the generic history of clocks and time which is interesting, albeit brief. The sheer number of clocks and watches is... More

An interesting and informative place. We had a short time prior to leaving and this was just perfect as it was a small museum but had a great collection of different clocks. You are right next to them,and have to resist touching them, so you can see all details. While we were there some of them chimed the hour so... More

the clocks and watches are arranged according to the different eras and in some case, the eras reflected the different trends and how clocks served the needs of people at that time. I am lost in time with the wealth of collection in the museum, not to mention the informative write-ups on each item in English that are provided. Some... More

An amazing collection of clocks in every size shape form and age. From sundials to the modern wrist watch. This old building has no elevator and the spiral staircase is very tricky. Not recommended for handicapped. I was witness to two persons who were turned away. ps very difficult to find in the winding alleys of the old city. The... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
