The Printing Museum is comprised of multiple galleries featuring permanent and temporary exhibitions, a theater, gift shop, and letterpress, bookbinding, lithography, and papermaking studios. Antique printing presses, rare books, prints, and historic newspapers allow you to experience ways that people have used printing technologies to transform our lives. Moments in history–from the invention of paper and moveable type to the struggle for a free press in the young American Republic to important advances in printing and publishing in the 20th century, you will witness how each successive technological innovation was instrumental in leading to a greater exchange of information and ultimately to a more literate society.
