“Compact museum fits in variety of interesting exhibits and displays”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

The museum is housed in an unassuming, small building but it fits a variety of interesting exhibits and displays in that compact space. Some are permanent, such as various printing presses and newspaper front pages from key moments in history. Others are temporary exhibits that are a fascinating reminder of exactly how many art forms did or do rely on printing. The museum also hosts print and books sales for a creative and off-beat gift.
