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.
