Noel Poirier, Museum Director

Discover the stories and methods used by the National Watch & Clock Museum to engage the general public in the history, arts, science and technology of our shared horological experience. Housing the largest and most comprehensive public collection of timepieces in North America, the National Watch & Clock Museum may soon stand alone as the only cultural institution actively preserving and presenting this important and meaningful aspect of human existence in the US. What are the challenges faced in presenting this story? How will the Museum continue to grow and develop in the future to ensure the story continues to be presented? Why is this story so important to our modern society? Mr. Poirier will provide background on the Museum, share its collection and its future in this candid and open discussion.
