Great Gravity Clock

TELL TIME WITH THE GREAT GRAVITY CLOCK!

The Great Gravity Clock stands fifty-two feet tall and is the biggest kinetic energy sculpture in Florida. Located in the Museum’s Grand Atrium since 1993, this unique timepiece is one of the only three that exist in the world.  The other two are in Mexico and Japan.  More than twenty-five years ago, Jim and Jan Moran and JM Family Enterprises partnered together to bring the Great Gravity Clock to Broward County. Years of exposure to the elements compromised its ability to tell time so a major restoration was undertaken in late 2016.  JM Family Enterprises, Inc. and The Jim Moran Foundation generously funded a complete restoration of the clock, which was completed in early April 2017.  Now a new generation of museum visitors can enjoy telling time with the Great Gravity Clock.

ATTENTION MODS MEMBERS & GUESTS

MODS and AutoNation® IMAX® Theater are currently closed to the public.

For more than 40 years, MODS has served as your trusted source for science education in the South Florida community. Our deepest commitment is to create the safest environment possible for our guests, staff, volunteers and animals that call MODS home.

With the Governor’s Executive Order 20-244 and Broward County’s Emergency Order 20-26, MODS’ Healthy Scientists Make Healthy Choices Protocol remains steadfast and unchanged at this time. Based on science and the realities of the pandemic, we will make protocol updates and ultimately reopen our doors to the public when we believe it is safest to do so. For everyone's protection, face masks will be required inside the Museum.

We look forward to welcoming the public back to the Museum in the near future. Until then, please connect with us for incredible virtual or safe drive-thru experiences.
