Visit the Clock & Watch Museum Winterthur

The Clock & Watch Museum Winterthur is located in the historic heart of Winterthur, a few minutes’ walk from the main railway station. If you would like to enrich your visit with additional background information, you can attend a themed "Museum at lunchtime" tour led by the Curator on the last Friday of every month. The Clock & Watch Museum Winterthur is in the same building as the Gewerbemuseum Winterthur (a museum of design, art and everyday culture), and a combined ticket is available for those wishing to visit both museums.

Enjoy coffee and cake or a freshly cooked meal in the Grand Café du Musée. The leafy courtyard is also an inviting spot in which to relax during the summer months.

Are you planning a private function in an inspiring location? We offer private tours of the current exhibitions throughout the year. You can round off your event with a drinks reception and buffet, organized by our in-house catering team.
