British Horological Institute

The BHI Museum Trust looks after the unrivalled collection of clocks, watches and other timepieces, tools, instruments, books, photographs and valuable documents brought together by BHI members since 1858. The Trust was established in 1994 to ensure the long-term future of this priceless collection.

Visitors can enjoy exploring the collection during the museum’s seasonal summer opening hours and  special event days, or via pre-booked group visits.

The Trust also makes the collection resources available to academics, researchers and students. BHI members can arrange access to the collection, archives and library during normal working hours (on an appointment basis).

Since 1971 the collection is housed in Upton Hall, a Grade 2* listed building
