VIDEO: Museum visitor breaking rare clock

COLUMBIA, Pa. – Pennsylvania's National Watch and Clock Museum hopes more people will keep their hands to themselves after a rare clock was knocked off a wall and broken.

The museum shared video on YouTube of a couple admiring the wooden clock sculpture, created by artist James Borden.

The video shows a man moving the weights in an apparent attempt to get the timepiece to run.
The clock fell to the ground and broke into several pieces.  

The man and woman tried to fix it, but when they couldn't, they walked away.  

The museum is not pressing charges against the pair. Officials said the museum has more problems with adults touching objects than children.
