Nighttime in the museum of time
According to the nursery rhyme Hickory Dickory Dock, “the clock struck 1, the mouse ran down.” But what really happens in the wee hours of the morning? Do mice really race up and down pendulums?
Find out during a family overnight event at National Watch and Clock Museum in Columbia. The November 2 event features a scavenger hunt, museum exploration, a “make-a-clock” craft time, snack and light breakfast.
The National Watch and Clock Museum is home to nearly 12,000 clocks and watches that date to the first time-telling devices.
Cost of the overnight event is $20 for children ages 6-12 and $12 for adults. Registration is required in advance by Oct. 26 and limited to the first 80 participants. For more information, visit www.nawcc.org or call 717-684-8261.
