A museum featuring three floors of clocks and watches from the 1850s to today’s latest technology. Presented by Timex Corp, it is located in a separate building, but included in the Brass Mall Commons shopping center general area. When the owners of Timex told a friend, Thor Heyerdahl, of their project, Thor’s family persuaded them to include an area featuring Thor’s travel in replicas of ancient boats from different areas in the Pacific. These journeys were to show possible contacts between ancient civilizations and the connections and mysteries we share. Stop in at the store and purchase timeless Timex products at discount prices. Hours are Tues.- Sat. 10 am to 7 pm. Ample parking is available.
