Interesting Places: The National Clock and Watch Museum in Lancaster, PA



The National Clock and Watch Museum in Lancaster, PA

by Joanne Troppello

My husband and I visited the National Clock and Watch Museum in Lancaster, PA last year. I recently added a video of the Engle Clock and 22 photos I took at the museum to a video for my new playlist, Interesting Places, for my Sunflower Quest YouTube channel.

As of 2020, this museum houses over 12,000 watches and clocks. When it opened in 1977, it only housed less than 1,000 items.

The short video before the photos in this video was when we sat for the presentation of the 1,049 lb. Engle Clock. This marvel of a clock was sent on tour across the United States for 70 years, from around 1881 to 1951, when it disappeared from public view.

The clock was rediscovered in a barn in the 1980's and lovingly restored by staff at the museum. It currently runs for visitors at the museum at noon and 2 pm. According to their website, the museum recently reopened on November 3, 2020 to members and on November 4, 2020 to the public – since it was previously closed for months due to COVID-19.
