From manual typesetting to desktop publishing

In this part of the exhibition, you can admire the old and modern tools used in the writing and printing industries. You can also see the effects that these tools had on the people working with them at first hand.

A new area about digital media opened in 2019. Therefore the print shop is being partially redesigned.
