Distance will no longer separate you from visiting the timepieces in the National Watch & Clock Museum’s collection. Visit the Museum by never leaving your home or office. Why, you can even sit there all cozy in your pajamas and slippers and the Museum will come to you!

The NAWCC has debuted an online, searchable content management system that provides access to Museum collections. Whether you’re seeking information on a particular watch or clock or just interested in browsing through an extensive collection, you can now search online through the Museum’s timekeeping artifacts. The database includes over 11,500 object listings and 3,000 images. The software used is Past Perfect, an internationally recognized leader in the museum collection data management field.

The new system is capable of handling up to one million catalog records. It is designed to keep up with accessions, cataloging, loans, exhibits, condition reporting, and repatriation of objects. “We’ve wanted to make the Museum’s collection accessible to NAWCC members and the general public for years. Only recently has the technology reached a point where it is affordable and easy, given the Museum’s limited resources,” states Museum Director Noel Poirier. “The database will be regularly updated with new pictures, new accessioned items, and feedback from the database users. We really want this to be a two-way line of communication.”
