More than 50 royal clocks are on display at the exhibition, which is currently open at the Bernadotte Apartment at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. The setting consists of three magnificent rooms, all filled with exciting objects dating from the 16th century to the present day. The clocks are of various sizes and shapes andhave played different roles in the Royal Household – many of them working still today. The Swedish King, who has a personal interest in clocks, thought of the exhibition as a way of inviting the public and making it part of his birthday celebrations: a symbol for how time marches on.
