Dedicated to an art form that probably changed the course of history, Museum Of Typography features two wings and three separate exhibit halls. The interactive tours offer a chance to learn about the development of printing and typesetting, from the Middle Ages until the present day. Wing A features machinery from the earliest days of typography, along with some automatic presses from the 20th century. Other highlights in this section include a foot-operated press and typesetting benches. Step into Wing B to see book-binding, wood engraving, monotype typesetting machines, copper engraving, and silk screen printing machinery. Check the website for seasonal opening hours.

A really well designed museum, especially for kids. The main docent was clearly very passionate about the work and gave a very detailed description of each piece. This museum would be a great place to take kids especially, because there is an interactive component (you get to print using copies of several hundred year old printing presses!). The museum is also much larger than it seems at first, but the second floor is probably the most interesting so don't skip it!
