Looking after the collection for you
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.
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 (read more about the history of Upton Hall).
Help. Create. Build. Enjoy.
The BHI Museum Trust is currently entering an exciting new period of development, which aims to see the Museum extend its opening arrangements, and develop new and exciting projects. We’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback as part of this development.
You can support the museum by becoming a volunteer or Friend of the BHI Museum Trust, providing the opportunity to support our work and meet like-minded people from around the globe.
You don’t need to be an expert on clocks and watches- we are looking for lots of different people interested in helping as room and tour guides, administrators, with collections research, marketing and social media and much more.
