Do you want to bring history to life for your students this year? Plan to visit the Printing Museum to experience one of many curriculum-based educational tours. From meeting the Inventive Dr. Franklin and learning about his life and many inventions and discoveries, to the world of Gutenberg and how the printing press shaped our world. Our Constitutional Convention Tour gives students the opportunity to become the delegates at the 1790 Convention and debate with Franklin the ideas that might go into the Constitution. During the Book Arts Tour, students can print their own letterpress keepsakes with the Museum’s antique presses and make their own books and more.
If you cannot visit the Printing Museum in Carson, our mobile exhibit, A Museum on Wheels: Franklin’s Colonial Assembly can visit your school. Each year Franklin and his traveling printing shop visit schools throughout California and Arizona.
Since 1988, the Printing Museum has worked with nearly 500,000 students and visitors at more than 2,000 schools through its educational programs. Find out why many of those students and teachers consider their experience at the Printing Museum one of their best!
