The Clockmaker's Museum

This is the fifth timekeeping piece of John Harrison, who solved the problem of Longitude with his fourth piece. The first through the fourth therefore belong to the crown, and are kept elsewhere, but the Clockmakers Museum was very proud to have procured the fifth.
It's their pride and joy.

The impressive design on the floor of the entry area of the museum.
