The clock technical educational show presents a collection of utility clocks from the middle of the 19th century.
The exhibition of the Uhrentechnische Lehrschau is based on the life's work of Johannes Hennig (1919 - 2004) from the spa town of Hartha. The exhibition focuses not only on the pure showing of clocks, but also gives an insight into the technology in the clocks. Visitors are shown mechanical and electrical functions such as striking mechanisms or the generation of a cuckoo call, and are provided with exciting information on the history of clock technology. In total, more than 1000 objects illustrate the developments in clock technology from 1850 to the present day. The exhibition includes clocks for the home, wristwatches and pocket watches, electric clock movements for mains or battery operation, vehicle and aircraft clocks as well as objects showing the application of timekeeping in technology and science.
