Allow Your Children to Have a Unique Experience at The Printing Museum

You can be a printer for the day at The Printing Museum! During your guided tour, you will learn of early forms of printing, participate in the hands-on printing of a leaf of the Gutenberg Bible pulled from a replica press, print a copy of the Declaration of Independence on a 19th-century Columbian iron handpress, discover the importance of the Linotype machine, and witness advances in printing and self-publishing that came about in the 20th century.

Through innovative, dynamic, and hands-on programming, The Printing Museum seeks to engage the public in the interpretation of its permanent collection. The museum strives to empower individuals and society by encouraging creative self-expression, as well as critical discourse and debate, and by providing for the exploration of how print and digital media work in tandem to influence our present-day lives.

Your tours conclude with a visit to our craft studios, temporary exhibitions and an optional film. Come explore the history of printing, while participating in the hands-on activities during the tour!

Step outside of our welcoming and comfortable community at The Heights at Harper’s Preserve Apartments in Conroe, Texas for the day! This event is coming to town on Saturday, and it promises to be a wonderful time!
