The Saint-Nicolas d’Aliermont clock museum

A renowned centre of industry in the region, Saint-Nicolas d’Aliermont welcomes you to its new clock museum.

The only one of its kind in Normandy, the museum retraces the history of clockmaking and precision timekeeping, a traditional expertise in Aliermont, from the 18th century to the present day with attractive and interactive displays. The collections are illustrated by photographs and archive documents, with particular emphasis on Bayard alarm clocks, to draw visitors into the world of time measurement, while demonstrations in the workshop give first-hand experience of the clockmaker's life and trade.
