U-Joints – Adhesives and Fusions, Part III

MATERIAL ARCHIV

MATERIAL ARCHIV

Please feel free to touch! From glass, metal, wood, paper, plastic and stone to ceramics, colour pigments, textiles and leather – the permanent MATERIAL ARCHIV exhibition is an interactive laboratory for studying materials. It is like a vast, three-dimensional textbook with an online database, some 1,000 specimen materials, experiment tables, video and audio stations and a library, all offering an in-depth yet enjoyable way of finding out about the world of materials. The MATERIAL ARCHIV is thus a fun learning opportunity, as well as a place where interested members of the public, specialists and students of all ages can carry out research and make discoveries.

Uhrenmuseum Winterthur

A voyage through six centuries

One building, two museums: the Uhrenmuseum Winterthur clock and watch museum is housed under the same roof as the Gewerbemuseum Winterthur. The Kellenberger Clock and Watch Collection and the Oscar Schwank Watch Collection – two superlative collections of international repute – form the core of the permanent exhibition. The multimedia displays feature antique timepieces dating from the 15th to the 20th centuries and are aimed at clock and watch enthusiasts, specialists and the wider public. Themed public tours take place on the last Friday of each month, starting at noon.
