I was at the park for the 5 p.m. performance. Need to be in the park to see clock open up & figurines move around. Delightful!!! If you are there a definite sight to visit in downtown.

We were the only ones to sit through the entire, almost 15 minute, show. Most people came, watched for a few minutes and then left. It was interesting but the only real reason we lasted so long was that it was a beautiful day and...More

This clock tower only performs 3 times a day, but it is really worth scheduling the time to be there. It plays for about 3-4 minutes while the characters spin around.

This is a beautiful clock showcasing the New Ulm heritage that I recommend visiting if you're new in town or just passing through. I believe it rings at noon, 3pm and 5pm. Free of charge, just show up, sit and enjoy.

It plays only three times daily. The figurines rotate on a circulating stage while the bells chime. When done, the circulating stage moves back into wall & door close.

A Beautiful Park with picnic tables on the Main Street in town, down by the store shops. A must see for families, especially when it chimes. 🎼🎧
