West Coast Clock & Watch Museum at AGSEM
In September 2000 the WCCWM was opened in Bellingham, Washington however this was never intended to be a permanent location but rather an incubation spot to achieve the goal of a permanent home. In 2015 AGSEM & WCCWM started talking about the possibility of merging the WCCWM into our "family" here in Vista and in June 2016 the temporary exhibit was opened inside the Museum's future HOLA center. We are so happy to be working towards achieving their ultimate goal of expanding this amazing exhibit and collection in the coming years!
National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC) members from the Western United States and Western Canada organized themselves to support the museum by forming a distinct NAWCC Chapter known as “Friends of the West Coast Clock & Watch Museum, Chapter 180”.
The museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit community based organization and supported solely on the donations of supporters in the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors' Chapter 180, Friends of the West Coast Clock and Watch Museum and other gifting NAWCC Chapters including San Diego Chapter 59 and Vista Chapter 136.
