The public tour on Wednesdays at 10am is great. Kids are free! And the artist in residence, Charles Criner, was our docent and did a fabulous job of showing the history of print and letting us experience it. It lasted for about 1 1/2 hours ending with an old disney film about Ben Franklin's inventions, including the printing press of course. We will definitely return to look more closely at some of the original printings of historic events in newspapers, like the Gettysburg address!

About The Printing Museum


It might seem strange to see a Gutenberg Bible page pulled using mid-1400s technology, or the Declaration of Independence being printed on an authentic 19th-century iron hand-press. At The Printing Museum, where local artists give live demonstrations of real, working artifacts, these sights are almost commonplace. In its mission to preserve and share the history of written communication, the organization functions as part museum and part interactive classroom. A permanent collection highlights preserved prints and gear from around the world—from ancient Mesopotamian clay tablets to Civil War-era newspapers. This collection even includes a display of equipment and documents belonging to Texas' first printer.

However, the museum's four galleries and 14,000 square feet of space aren't just reserved for relics. Every year, staff curate 12 rotating exhibits that, in the past, have covered the work of contemporary printmakers and photographers or explored the evolution of modern printing around the world. Meanwhile, an on-site print shop holds hands-on, all-ages workshops in typography, paper-making, and other forms of print-based art.
