Young People

The National Print Museum offers and is continuing to develop an exciting range of guided tours, workshops and educational resources for young people.

Young People | Guided Tours

The National Print Museum offers interactive guided tour for young people wishing to visit with their friends or with a youth group.

The Museum’s permanent exhibition is laid out in the same style as an old print shop with a Composing Area, Printing Area and Finishing Area and through this exhibition our tour guide will lead through the different stages of printing, from the inventions of Johannes Gutenberg to with the changes brought by early modern technology such as the PC’s and laptops we all use today!
