Founded upon collections assembled over more than a century, this museum of art and horology collects, preserves and presents two quite different, but complementary, themes. One is of the changing artistic tastes and achievements of local people; the other is of the development of timekeeping in Britain, Europe and America. Together, these collections trace the creative genius of the artist, the inventor and the craft worker across the centuries. They also follow the changing needs and fashions of people who were able to own and use such exceptional possessions.

Today, within a carefully restored eighteenth-century mansion, visitors can discover a beautiful and intricate world of art and science. Using real evidence from watercolors to watches, the Manor House Museum offers the serious scholar and the casual visitor, of any age, an opportunity to enjoy a fascinating history with displays that are intriguing, informative and fun.
