Welcome To The Bily Clocks


The Bily Clocks Museum & Antonin Dvorak Exhibit has been a favorite attraction of young and old for many years. Visitors return year after year to the enchanting town of Spillville, Iowa, (located thirteen miles southwest of the town of Decorah), to marvel at the unique clocks that two brothers, Frank and Joseph Bily (bee-lee) hand-carved. The clocks depict history, art, religion and culture and are covered with hundreds of expertly carved figures.  Some stand over nine feet tall.

Also housed in the museum on the second floor is an exhibit in memory of the famous Czech composer, Antonin Dvorak.  In the summer of 1893, he along with his family, occupied the second floor of the building.

An admission fee is charged. Tours are given regularly.
