A rich and glorious history alongside contemporary art and cultural events for the public
One of the permanent exhibitions in the museum presents the rare clocks collection of Sir David Salomons, which contains, among other things, the groundbreaking clocks of Abraham Louis Breguet (1747–1823). Breguet is one of the inventors who had the greatest impact on the modern history of clocks. He is responsible for critical technological innovations for clocks, such as the masterpiece "Marie Antoinette" clock.
This clock led to a revolution that redefined how time is measured and it's meaning for the modern man. This is one of the three most important clock collections in the world. It includes dozens of clocks of various types, including picture clocks, clocks from the 18th century made for the Turkish market, musical golden boxes decorated with enamel paintings, pearls, and diamond inlays, carriage clocks, special items such as a gun, a fan, bottle, butterfly, ring and more.
Apart from the unique permanent exhibitions, the museum dedicates two rotating exhibitions to contemporary art every year on various topics that correspond with the art and culture of Islam. The exhibitions are accompanied by dozens of cultural events for the public, including gallery talks and meetings with artists presenting at the exhibitions, music events, and lectures. Information about the new exhibitions can be found on the museum's website.
