  • A great, local museum. If you ask for a tour they will be flexible. This is one of the most unique museums you can experience. They will demonstrate original printing on a working gutenberg press to print a page of the bible! Also they'll actually melt and make type which is fun to see.
  • I've been to the museum twice and each time I've learned something new! It was a fascinating experience to learn about the history of printing and being able to see how things worked since the beginning. Definitely worth going to see!!
