Activities for people with disabilities

A museum for everybody

A museum for everybody
Time doesn't stand still here

The Clock & Watch Museum Winterthur is barrier-free and enables everyone to experience time in their own way. In fact time is actually audible and perceptible in the unique display of historic clocks from the Konrad Kellenberger Collection, since many of the clock movements are working and their rhythmic ticking provides a harmonious background sound as visitors explore the museum. Tick-tock, tick-tock.

Audio guide

An audio guide in three languages (German, French and English) is available free of charge from the museum reception. This gives detailed information about selected exhibits.

Barrier-free access

The museum building is fully wheelchair accessible, including the toilet facilities. Access to the museum is via a ramp, the upper floors are served by a lift, and a wheelchair is available if required. If you need additional assistance, our reception team will be happy to help. Entrance to the Clock & Watch Museum Winterthur is free for the disabled person and their companion, on production of proof of disability.
