    I've been to Klaipeda a few years ago.. I wish I'd known about it's existance :(
    BTW - a strange city - a big post-communist city with an 'ocean' of Soviet ear buildings surrounding a small and cute old town, easy to miss unless you know it's there ;)
    Thanks!
    Have a great day!!!

    No idea about that Arsa Omega :/ The staff has zero info about anything... Maybe contacting director would help I do not know, I sadly live in the other side of the country. They do not answer emails...

    That's Soviet style for sure - crap everything in the sight up...

    The 'ocean' is just a sea, Baltic sea. You should have also visited the Curonian spit, a Lithuanian treasure of nature, dunes and sea :)

    No it's a metaphor ;) A 'ocean of Soviet architecture' and in between a small islad being the old town ;) Sorry for not being clear ;)

    I see the word "laikrodziai". What does that mean? Just curious because it seems to have a possible connection to your forum name.

    Laikrodžiai is a plural form of Laikrodis. Laikrodukas is a diminutive form of it :)
    Laik - Time
    Rodis - Shower
    A thing that shows time :)

    We do not have separate words like watch and clock. They are all TimeShowers :D

    --------------

    Did not get any info about the chrono as they ignore my emails bloody Soviet relics :|

    Hi
    It looks a good Museum, nicely laid out with descriptions and graphics, exactly as a Museum should.

    Tower clock movements, running are fantastic, and so important to show how a timepiece works!

    I am glad you visited and shared the photos, you once posted here that "you would not visit a Museum unless every watch, clock was 'tick-tock'"

    I love Museums for what I can see and learn, and if items are operational that is a bonus!

    Good to you
    A

    I do not remember if I said I would not visit at all but for sure those non tcking ones is a sad view for me :)
    I was really surprised with this museum, I was expecting just some russian crap and maybe several swiss...
    Some years ago there was some kind of "donate your watches to museum" fiest
    Surprisingly they collected many items and said that those did not hit the screens yet :O
