03 Feb The International Printing Museum
The International Printing Museum is a dynamic non-profit Museum devoted to bringing the history of books, printing, and the book arts to life for diverse audiences. The Museum takes one of the world’s most significant collections of antique printing machinery and interprets it for today’s audiences through working demonstrations, the "History In Motion" mobile Museum trailer, and theater presentations. Tour highlights include seeing a live demonstration of manual typecasting, getting to print a page of the Gutenberg Bible on a Gutenberg Press, and seeing your name cast in a metal type slug by a working Linotype Machine.
The Museum is open for walk-in tours Saturdays or Tuesday through Friday by appointment. Annual events include The Los Angeles Printers Fair, Krazy Krafts Day, The Independence Day Celebration, The Dickens Holiday Celebration, and much more. In addition we offer programming for the Girl Scouts Book Artist Cadette Patch and the Scouts Graphic Arts Badge and Pulp & Paper Badge.
