THE NATIONAL PRINT MUSEUM
The National Print Museum collects, documents, preserves and exhibits the history of the printing craft in Ireland.
The Museum has a collection of over 10,000 objects including print machinery and artifacts such as printing blocks, photographs, books, metal and wooden movable type and ephemera.
The lay-out of the National Print Museum mirrors that of a printing workshop with composing, printing and finishing areas. On display is a representative collection of this rich centuries-old printing heritage. Highlights include an original 1916 Proclamation along with a Wharfedale Stop Cylinder Press, the machine similar to that that the Proclamation was printed on.
