House of Industrial Heritage

Haus für Industriekultur©Alex Deppert

The printing museum is a part of the Hessen state museum in Darmstadt.

The printing museum gives an insight into the techniques of type casting, typesetting, and print methods. Numerous still-functioning machines document the transition from manual labour to machines in the printing trade from the beginning of the 19th century until the 1970s.
