Please plan to visit us on Saturday, June 17, 2017 from 1 to 5pm for the museum Open House. Come explore the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum and all it has to offer.
This is a great opportunity to learn about the history of wood type and Hamilton, experience printing demonstrations, witness wood type cutting on a pantograph and enjoy a guided tour. At 1 and 3 pm there will be guided tours and at 1:30 and 3:30 pm are wood type cutting demonstrations. All day visitors can pull a print of their own to take home. It's all FREE and open to the public. Join us for this family-friendly event. The museum is wheelchair and stroller accessible.
