Local museum opens with antique clocks, floor-to-ceiling stained glass

Walking into the Halim Time and Glass Museum is like taking a step back in time through a maze of winding corridors lined with antiques.

The new museum, which sits at 1560 Oak Ave. and opened Sept. 26, is filled with clocks and stained glass windows from all over the world. The pieces come from the private collection of Cameel Halim, a Wilmette-based real estate investor from Egypt who began collecting historical items with his wife, Hoda, more than 20 years ago.
