Nova Scotia Museum Clock and Watch Collection
(For more information about our 
fantastic clock collection)

The Annapolis Valley Macdonald Museum is home to the N.S. Museum's collection of over 150 antique clocks and watches. This permanent exhibit showcases items collected by the late Norman Phinney and was one of the primary reasons for establishing the Macdonald Museum. Many of the clocks are in working condition. There are a wide variety of clocks and watches on display, with some dating back to the late 17th century. Anyone interested in clocks would do well to see this exhibit - one of the best in Eastern Canada.

The Clock Tower 
This memorial tower was designed by Joseph Everett Chandler of Boston. It was built for William Inglis Morse and Susan Alice Ensign Morse to put on their property in Paradise, Annapolis County in 1936. Susan Morse Hilles, daughter of the original owners, gave the tower to William Inglis Morse, the 2nd, in 1963. He, in turn, donated it to the Nova Scotia Museum complex in 1989 as a part of the outstanding clock collection at the Annapolis Valley Macdonald Museum to perpetuate the memorial function of the tower. The structure was moved to its current location at the south end of the museum through the combined efforts of the Nova Scotia Museum and the Annapolis Valley Macdonald Museum.
