The Makkah Clock Museum is located in the foot of the clock face at a height of 400m. The exhibition tells the spectacular story of the construction of the largest tower clock in the world. The exhibition is divided into thematic islands dedicated to the main features of the Makkah Clock structure. Original size models of a beacon light, a gigantic steel knot and façade element are on display conveying the massive proportions of the building.
A five-meter high, detailed cut-away model of the clock tower was made for the exhibition which is housed in a six-meter-high, anti-reflective glass show case. In addition, a fully functional clock drive and a set of clock hands are on display. The different lighting features of the clock tower can be explored in an interactive simulator on a large screen. Large graphic murals printed on a special mesh fabric are attached to the 10-meter-high glass façade. This creates a scenic background and regulates the strong incidence of daylight, while at the same time maintaining the transparency and openness of the space.
Free-standing media steles with integrated 55-inch LCD screens are located in each thematic island and present short films on the manufacturing and installation process. After seeing the exhibition visitors can access the spacious observation deck. From here breathtaking views of the Haram Mosque and the city of Makkah are possible. Visitors can explore the historical sites of the city of Makkah in an augmented reality experience accessible from eight digital viewing scopes.
