Over 4,000 timepieces from many different eras are on display at this museum, which even includes some larger than life outdoor sculptures/clocks in the adjacent park. The collection was begun around 1902 and to say it's comprehensive is an understatement. Watch lovers will want to spend at least a half day walking through all the exhibits. The timepieces are small and the museum is large! Nearby, the smaller Musée d'Horlogerie du Locle is another must-see for watch lovers. Both museums and their respective towns are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
