2018 and 2019 Agenda of the MIH

                                                                                        

Permanent exhibition

  • MAN AND TIME - The exhibition takes you on a captivating journey through time. Unique in its architectural and museographic design, the Musée international d'horlogerie houses the world's greatest collection devoted to the measurement of time. From sun dials to atomic clocks through pendulums, clocks, watches, automata, machines as well as tools from the 16th century to the present day, the exhibition unveils mysteries of time and retells the technical, artistic, social, economic and cultural history of watchmaking in Switzerland and around the world in a very vivid and didactic manner, spanning over 2000 m2.

 

Semi permanente exhibitation

  • TO THE NEAREST FEMTOSECOND!  - Dive into the infinitely accurate! The search for precision has been a catalyst for the development and the innovations in the watchmaking field since the 16th century. From World War II, such precision has moved from watchmakers and astronomers to scientists: time is now defined through observation of physical phenomena and not through astronomical observation anymore. The femtosecond – equivalent to 10-15 – (or a quadrillionth) of a second is the most precise fraction of a second ever measured. Such a degree of precision is imperceptible to human beings, but has nevertheless become necessary to daily life organisation: geo-tracking, transportation, telecommunications have become efficient thanks to this extreme precision.

 

from March 15th  2018 to February 28th 2019
