  • Such wonderful, friendly staff. My husband and I especially enjoyed an up close view of several old Linotype machines and chatting with one of their volunteers - a retired physicist - who was so informative and personable. Thanks for making it a fun winter day in Two Rivers.
  • The place is huge inside! Extensive exhibits. Definitely worth a visit especially since it only costs $5. The museum store probably has THE most unique Two Rivers souvenirs you are likely to find anywhere. Exceptionally friendly and informative staff.
  • A ONE OF A KIND museum which houses woodtype that goes back to its beginnings. Type is being preserved and more is collected to have the only museum of its kind in the country. See the history, shop the gift shop, or print something of your own. Don't miss it.
  • Watching a movie about the museum. Fascinating. Living in Adelaide, South Australia. Wish I could get there.
  • This was a great museum experience. It's a great collection of artifacts, and we had an awesome guided tour by a former employee of the company.
