No matter what the reason, you can be assured that our range of authentic Galileo thermometers available online and in-store today at the Clock Shop are of the highest quality. 


Galileo Thermometers - How Do They Work?


A Galileo thermometer originates from the thermoscope originally invented by Galileo Galilei in the early 1600s. More than a curiosity, it's hard not to be fascinated by this truly unique weather instrument. The thermometer is made of a sealed glass cylinder filled with liquid and a number of different coloured glass spheres. Since each sphere has a slightly different density, they will rise and fall as the temperature changes, providing a temperature scale and a truly mesmerising feature that is both unique and colourful for your chosen space.


NB: Galileo didn’t actually invent the Galileo thermometer itself. This rendition that you can purchase from the Clock Shop was originally designed by the Natural History Museum, London, in 1990, using the theories and methods Galileo and his colleagues invented in the 17th century.
