    The Musée de l'Imprimerie is a museum in Lyon, France, with the mission of enhancing, conserving, documenting and valuing the heritage of printed books and graphic.

    The Musee de l'Imprimerie was established in Lyon because Lyon had been a centre of printing and the book trade in Europe in the 15th and 16th centuries and the city held large historical collections of books and the graphic arts. The museum was designed by the master printer and historian Maurice Audin, with the historian of the book, Henri-Jean Martin, then chief curator of the Library of Lyon.

    It's the best museum for typography, print and graphic design I've ever visited. You can spend hours there looking at all machines, presses and artworks. Highly recommended! You can get a return Eurostar ticket from London for about £90, so it's a nice weekend trip.
