The Hausman–Hill Collection of Calculating Instruments, is an exhibit featuring rare examples of historical measuring instruments drawn from the private collection of Bucks County residents Kathryn Hausman and Jim Hill.
Over the last fifty years, Hausman and Hill have built one of the most extensive private collections of early colonial and 19th-century American measuring implements. Many of the early measuring tools and complex instruments on display embody the sophisticated scientific principles that helped map, measure, and build early America.
This playful exhibit, perfect for young children, teaches the fundamentals of measurement through fun questions like, How tall are you in apples or inches or pennies? Can you use your foot as a ruler?” “How many chickens do you weigh?
We hope that you take advantage of a leisure day in Doylestown and strolling through the exhibits along with the rest of the museum. Enjoy!
