    The Museum of Typography is located in the Park of Local Industries in Souda, Crete. It constitutes the life vision of its founder, Yannis Garedakis, founder and editor of the newspaper “Haniotika nea”.

    The Museum of Typography officially opened its gates in May 2005. The museum collection includes hard to find, cast iron printing presses and other machines, as well as tools and objects that present the development of typography from birth, in the days of Gutenberg, up to our days. Rare books and newspapers, as well as our precious lithographies, travel the visitor in the art of Typography.

    The effort for the enrichment of the museum with new exhibits and the contact with people of Typography are continuous. In April 2012 the museum was extended by adding a new wing with collection exhibits that are related to the development of graphic arts, as well as two important exhibitions regarding the evolution of typography and the history of writing.

    During guided tours children and adults have the opportunity to print on the old printing presses.
