    The Tofaş Bursa Museum of Anatolian Cars is hosting Time Machines, a clock exhibition that reflects the history of timepieces going back thousands of years.

    “The clock in itself is space, its movement time, its setting man.” So does Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar, a prominent figure in Turkish literature, define time. A product of man’s passion for measuring time, clocks have graced tables, walls and even towers throughout history. Going beyond their function of measuring time, clocks have also taken on an aesthetic identity that reflects the attributes of different cultures.

    Tick Tock, Tick Tock…

    Time changes, so do clocks… In its ‘Time Machines” exhibition, Tofaş Bursa Museum of Anatolian Cars takes visitors on a journey through time and the development of clocks. You can see 100-year-old clocks in this exhibition, which features 1,800 of them from the collection of architect Naim Arnas as well as  tools and instruments used by clockmakers.
