And now what of the Penrith Museum of Printing?

The Penrith Museum of Printing, located in the large western Sydney suburb of Penrith, the gateway to the Blue Mountains, is probably today the best, best-run and best-known of Australia’s many printing museums. Threatened by a projected new sports facility, is it in danger of going the same way (i.e. into oblivion) as the Melbourne Museum of Printing?

A museum of the photocopier? Outrageous!

A visit to the Rendsbourg Printing Museum (Germany)

The town Rendsburg may be a bit remote for anyone doing the Grand Tour of Europe but it is well worth the detour - for its excellent printing museum as well as for the town itself and no less for the train ride through the countryside. One of the best printing museums and superior to some which are far better known.

The printing museum in the Benary Speicher, Erfurt

A study in survivals (as D. B.Updike once put it): the collection put together in the 1980s by the staff of the Druckerei Fortschritt (Progress Printery) with the aim of establishing a printing museum to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the death of Karl Marx is now housed in the local museum of the city of Erfurt. It's well worth visiting.
