Guys, did you hear about this? Unfortunately looks like Timexpo: The Timex Group Museum in Waterbury
Connecticut is closing it's doors. The museum which gave you a look at the history of Timex, and their watches,
and clocks opened just 14 years ago, but now is shutting down because of a lack of visitors. Fortunately
though the collections will be transferred to different locations like Timex's own headquarters in Middlebury,
Waterbury City Hall, and various museums like the Smithsonian in Washington, and the National Watch &
Clock Museum in Columbia Pa. everybody.

Have the story here for you...

Sad right Gary?! ..The only good thing is that you will be able to see the collections at different
museums still, but it won't be the same I know.

P.S. You went there right Gary? Those are your pictures? Smile
