Attraction Information

There is an excellent education area offering free activities, and a self guided tour of the museum is free too! Chargeable guided tours are available if you prefer, and include one especially for families.

The museum has a collection of over 10,000 objects and includes items such as printing blocks, photographs, movable type and printing machinery. Everything is laid out as it would have been in a printing workshop, with different areas for composing, printing and finishing.

The Education Area offers families a great opportunity to discover the creative world of printing, with a number of free activities that encourage interaction and learning. There are activity sheets, alphabet games, a Junior library, plus a number of arts and crafts activities, such as stenciling, drawing and colouring, easy origami, and much more!

Family Guided Tours are available and offer you and the kids the chance to learn about a selection of different printing machines, and to have a go at handsetting and printing. There is also a great audiovisual presentation at the end.
A number of events are held during the year, including Family Fun Days, with loads more activities for everyone, such as face painting, printing ‘Wanted' posters, mini workshops and more! So check online before you visit to see what's on.
