It's Lunch Time
IT’S LUNCH TIME!
Pack a lunch and join the National Watch and Clock Museum for its first Lunch “Time” presentation on April 12. Museum Director Noel Poirier will discuss the Museum’s recently acquired Beaman clock. Learn at Lunch “Time” about the history of this unique American timepiece.
The well-known Beaman clock, built in the 1870s from assorted parts found around Beaman's farm and home in the Gilbertville/Ware, MA, area, was installed in his barn.
“We wanted to provide a more intimate opportunity for people to discover objects from the Museum collection, or learn about important and interesting aspects of the history of time and timekeeping. We thought a brown bag lunch would be the perfect fit,” explains Museum Director Noel Poirier.
Lunch “Time” is a complimentary educational program that will be held from 12 to 1 p.m. and continue every other month. Future dates include June 14, August 16, October 18, and December 13.
