There’s a reason for why museums have signs saying not to touch the objects on display. Some visitors to the National Watch & Clock Museum of Columbia, Pennsylvania learned that the hard way.

The museum was home to a unique clock designed by James Borden. It looks like the visitors were touching and manipulating the device, causing it to fall off the wall and break.


According to Atlas Obscura, it does seem as though the clock can be repaired, according to Borden. Hopefully, it’ll be back on the wall before too much longer.
