Clock and stained glass museum opens in Evanston

The Halim Time & Glass Museum opens in Evanston today as what its founder believes is the world's first museum dedicated solely to clocks and stained glass. It's been an 11-year labor of love for hobbyist Cameel Halim, along with his wife, Hoda, and three daughters. 

"We believe that when items get to this level, you don't own it—you just keep it for a while," says Halim. "Most of our clocks are 300 years old; they're made in the 1700s. They're such important items. They're not meant to look at yourself, you're meant to share it with the public."

The museum features 1,100 clocks from around the globe and 80 stained glass pieces—some as tall as 25 feet—in a five-story building at 1560 Oak St. in Evanston.
