Book an exciting and engaging visit for your class to the National Print Museum!
The National Print Museum offers an educational, interactive and activity-based guided tour specifically designed for Primary School children.
- Your class will travel back in time to experience what it was like to be a young apprentice printer by exploring the National Print Museum’s Print Shop style layout – the composing area, printing area and finishing area.
- Children learn all about Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of the printing press, and how newspapers, books and posters were created before the arrival of today’s computers.
- Working directly with artifacts from the Museum’s collection, children learn about a selection of the traditional printing machines, hand-set and print their own poster, and make and decorate their very own printer’s hat!
- Your group can test their knowledge back in the classroom with the activities and quizzes in our Primary School Teacher’s Fact and Activity Pack.
