The photo above captures The  Harrison case.  It contains the famous "H5" clock that John Harrison perfected to solve the problem of longitude.  The cases across contain works by Mudge, Arnold, Earnshaw and other influential clock makers.  

The Library and Collection are funded by the Clockmakers’ Museum and Educational Trust. There is a part-time consultant keeper. The Guildhall Library, where the Museum is located, manages the collection on a daily basis.
