When most people think of museums they probably think of art and other antiques. Whey would there be museums and other exhibitions for clocks of all things? A better question might be, why shouldn’t there be museums and exhibitions celebrating antique clocks? After all, they are antiques, and a very solid argument could be made that they are an art form as well. Yes, that’s correct, antique clocks are an art form.
If you don’t consider antique clocks to be an art form, then perhaps you need to take a moment to think about what art means to you. Art, by its very nature is subject to change and interpretation, so it’s hard to come up with a solid definition of what constitutes art, and what does not. But most people would agree that art consists of something unique and expressive, and by this definition many antique clocks would qualify as pieces of art instead of simple timepieces. From the very iconic cuckoo clocks to impressive antique longcase clocks.
Going to a museum exhibition to view antique clocks can be a very rewarding and education experience. It can also help you to get a better understanding of what type of clocks you might be interested in purchasing for your home or business. You might also be surprised to learn that there are frequent exhibitions of antique clocks, and there’s a good chance that there is one within driving distance right now.
