CURATOR’S TOUR OF THE MUSEUM GALLERY

 
Museum Curator Mark Barbour takes you on a working tour of the Printing Museum’s galleries. He highlights the history of printing from the Chinese invention of printing and Gutenberg’s development of typecasting, to Ben Franklin’s colonial printing shop. You will see the workings of a 19th century country newspaper press and experience typecasting machines including the Linotype, the mechanical marvel at the end of the century
 
There are four parts to the tour. If you enjoy your tour, we would encourage you to consider making a small donation to support the International Printing Museum, especially during this difficult season of COVID-19.
