On the building’s first floor, visitors can observe the majority of the Halim Time and Glass Museum’s stained-glass collection. Consisting of dozens of pieces, this collection mainly showcases compositions created by Americans artists beginning in the mid-1800s.
Moving to the second floor, visitors have an opportunity to learn how mechanical timekeeping has evolved since late-1200s Europe by viewing the museum’s more than 1,100 timepieces. Notable pieces on display include Chinese clocks that date back to the 1700s and a grandfather clock that contains a pipe organ and a dulcimer.
If at any time visitors need a break, they can head downstairs to the Museum Cafe on the Lower Level. There, they can enjoy a bite to eat as they take in temporary exhibits, as well as paintings. Soon, visitors will be able to find rotating exhibits on the third floor.
