An amazing Museum all dedicated to the Evolution of printing, from the wooden press to now. To my knowledge this is unique in Europe. Children also love it. We visited the Museum before a wedding that took place in the attic of the museum

Great explanations about the progress of printing, with both the European and Asia approaches. I liked the machines, the scenes and explanations. Also, great view on the new Poya bridge. Finally, we enjoyed the old banknotes displays.

Stumbled upon this by accident - a surprisingly informative exhibition. I say 'surprisingly', because very little information was in English, but the exhibits were set up so well that we still found everything interesting and informative. We had two small kids - ages 3 and...More
