Visit to the Museum of Printing
15 Thronton Avenue, Haverhill, Massachusetts
Saturday, April 29, 2017, 10:00 AM

The Museum of Printing, located in North Andover when founded in 1978, moved into new and expanded space in Haverill in September, 2016. Located just 35 miles from Boston, the new museum holds one of the world's largest collections of printing and typesetting hardware and ephemera. Tasked with saving and preserving printing equipment and library materials associated with the graphic arts, the museum has galleries, a store, two libraries, and meeting and workshop areas. For a map and very easy-to-follow directions, see the museum's website here.

Our visit includes a buffet lunch at no charge to Ticknor members. Because we will need to let our hosts know how many people plan to stay for lunch, we ask that you rsvp to Janet Steins at janet.steins@gmail.com by April 22nd.

The museum stays open until 4:00 PM on Saturdays.
