Technological advances in the printing industry led to major changes towards the end of the 1900s. Lead typesetting disappeared and was superseded by computer technology. Printing presses were rebuilt or replaced and all that remained were the old machines, the ‘old faithfuls’. Their next destination was scrapyard or a museum, if they were not retained for purely nostalgic reasons. In 1990, when the idea of the a printing museum began to take shape, the museum became a haven for these ‘old faithfuls’ and since then the number of machinery exhibits has steadily increased, as more and more companies have donated their treasured workhorses to us.

Our aim is to let these machines become an integral part of our working activities and to let them operate at their own pace.
