Lightner Museum Curator Barry Myers conducts monthly tours featuring unique and special treasures of the Museum. The tours are the first Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m. and offer guests an intimate encounter with a select few of the Lightner’s eclectic relics.



Egyptian Revival Clock Set, Marble and Bronze, c. 1880

February’s topic, A Tale of Clockwork in the United States will explore the museum’s expansive collection of clocks and timepieces made or used in America and how mass production influenced society.

Due to the de-installation of a special exhibition and transitioning gallery spaces, donations are requested in lieu of tickets for this Curator’s Tour. The tour will begin in the front lobby of the museum at 10 a.m.
