|IN 2011 STILL CANADA'S ONLY FORMAL CLOCK MUSEUM|
The Canadian Clock Museum opened to the public in May of 2000 as founder Allan Symons' personal retirement millennium project.
Since then, this unique museum has been wriiten about many times in various publications. In this section you will find scans of several notes and articles about the museum. Also included is an example of the Canadian North Of 49 crossword puzzle prepared weekly by Kathleen Hamilton that at least seven times since 2005 has had the location of the clock museum used as one of the clues.
In 2010 Allan received two honours for his work in setting up and operating Canada's only clock museum for more than ten years. The Ottawa Chapter of the Pennsylvania-based National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC) presented Allan with a commemorative plaque at a special Chapter meeting held at the museum in May.
At the 2010 October annual conference of the Ontario Museum Association, held in Toronto this year, Allan received a Lifetime Achievement Award of Excellence certificate for his contributions to the museum community in Ontario. He has been closely involved with the Renfrew County Museums Network for almost ten years. The presentation was made by The Honourable Michael Chan, provincial Minister of Tourism and Culture at the awards banquet.
