Enjoy a tailormade tour

1 hour 6-2525 euros per group

Klaipėda Clock and Watch Museum has more than 1,500 clocks from different periods. During the guided tour, you will learn about the museum's owners and the history of the building, which is inseparable from the history of Klaipėda and the whole of Lithuania Minor. You will visit the clockmaker's workshop and find out what instruments he used. Of course, you will see clocks of all types and shapes, from the most primitive, ancient ones to the complex and ornate Baroque clocks. You will hear about the most famous Lithuanian and European clockmakers and see their works. Some furniture and clocks decorations were inspired by Charles Boolean techniques, an inlay of tortoise shell, brass and plywood (marquetry). At the Clock and Watch Museum, you will lose track of time. The price is 25 euros per group and an individual museum ticket for each participant.
