Got an old timepiece you’d like to know more about?

Bring it to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History this Saturday for Clock Day.

During the popular event, people can bring in watches and clocks for evaluation by members of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors. They can tell you about your timepiece’s value and condition and determine whether a nonworking clock or watch is worth repairing.

If your clock it too large to move, you can bring a photo of it.

The event also features demonstrations, displays and a sundial activity for kids.

Hours for Clock Day are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is included in the cost of admission to the museum, which is $12 for adults and $10 for kids and teenagers ages 3 to 18, college students with valid IDs and seniors older than 60. Children 2 and younger are admitted free.

The museum is at 1 Wade Oval Drive in Cleveland’s University Circle neighborhood.
