    FREE ADMISSION TO COMMEMORATE 9/11 ANNIVERSARY

    Columbia, Pa: The National Watch & Clock Museum announces a free admission day on September 11, 2003, to celebrate America's freedoms.

    The day will include special screenings of HBO's Emmy award-winning documentary In Memoriam: New York City, 9/11/01. According to an HBO summary, the one-hour documentary follows former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani and the staff of city hall from their first realization of the attack, "through despair and tears, to a newfound strength that would emerge in the spirit of a new America." The one-hour film will be shown throughout the day at 10:00, 11:15, 12:30, 1:45, and 3:00. Viewer discretion is advised.

    The museum will also be showcasing a special exhibit entitled Home Front to Battlefield: Keeping Time in the Civil War. Highlights of the exhibit include the first public display of the pocket watch belonging to Lt. George Dixon, captain of the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley. The watch was lost with the vessel and crew after the submarine sank the USS Housatonic in 1864. This watch may hold clues that will help to determine the exact cause of death of the crew, who never returned from their mission. Also highlighted is a life-size replica of a section of the Hunley submarine, Civil War weapons, and the pocket watch presented to General George Meade for his victory at Gettysburg.

    "As a public museum our goal is to educate and preserve," stated Connie Stuckert, Ph.D., Executive Director. "We remember the images, emotions, and the timeline of events that became a part of each of us on September 11, 2001. This commemoration is designed to celebrate America's freedoms and to continue to strengthen the community and the American spirit."

    The National Watch & Clock Museum is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. It is operated by the National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors, Inc., a non-profit association with approximately 30,000 members and 175 chapters worldwide. The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. from April to December. January through March the Museum is open until 4 p.m. and is closed Sunday. The special exhibit, Home Front to Battlefield: Keeping Time in the Civil War, continues through June of 2004. Regular adult admission is $6 with discounts to seniors, students, families, AAA members, and groups of 10 or more. Free admission is valid September 11, 2003 only. Groups of ten or more are encouraged to call ahead. Visit our website at www.nawcc.org for additional museum information and directions.
