Introducing the Museum of Measurement and Time MOMT
I've been working on and off on the website and web presence of the Museum of Measurement and Time (MOMT) and thought it would be a good time to introduce the website to my arsenal of Land Surveying related web design projects. I started assisting the owner and curator at MOMT around 2 years ago when we met on my mega-support site for land surveyors, Land Surveyors United. At that time, the museum was close to opening to the public with many exhibits related to the history of time and measuring, such as antique surveying equipment and a wide variety of ancient clocks.
The Museum of Measurement and Time is a nonprofit corporation with a Board of Directors. Exhibits of Land Surveying, Clocks and various measuring devices are on display. There is no charge to visit the museum. Donations are welcome, proceeds are used to maintain and improve the museum.
Most of the items on exhibit in the museum are from the private collection of Johnny and Edith Ingram. Life long collectors of antiques. The Ingram's are dedicated to sharing their love of antiques and are committed to maintaining the museum.
Visitors to Jefferson are able to walk in history by visiting this early Texas town and the many historic homes. Now that journey is extended with a museum that tells the tale of the land.
Persons interested in donating items for display in the museum are encouraged to do so. Items in the museum are protected by insurance and security. Donations and loans to the museum will be acknowledged. Contact us for details.
For Surveyors and Time Collectors
Persons engaged in the fields of surveying and clock collecting are especially welcome. Contact the museum to make special arrangements for your visit.
Grand opening and visitation ceremonies are being planned for both the surveying and horology communities. Continue to check our web site and professional publications for details.
