Join NHSM Archeology Club for a Tour of Bromo Seltzer Tower. The tour takes you up inside the workings of the largest four dial gravity driven, non-chiming clock in the world. The tour begins with an informative Power Point presentation to learn about the history of the building and Isaac Emerson, understand the clock workings, and Bromo Seltzer, the produce for which it is named. Their museum holds a collection of Bromo Seltzer bottles and ephemera. The building is home to 15 floors of artists, writers, sculptors, and more, some of which may be open the day of your visit. Feel free to visit them while there.


Accessibility Limitations: The building is not handicap or wheelchair accessible. The last leg up into the tower is a “ships ladder”.


Ages: 11 years -adults
