    The Museum of Printing in Armidale (Australia) houses a historically significant collection of printing machinery and equipment which comprise the FT Wimble & Co. Collection. The collection includes printing presses, a Linotype machine, guillotines, book binding equipment, wooden and metal type and a history of printing in Australia from 1850 to the early 1900s. There are over 1000 printing blocks and a comprehensive library of books on printing and technical manuals. Displays of small equipment and printed products change regularly.

    The Museum of Printing is a must for anyone interested in the history of printing in Australia, or the importance of that industry to rural and regional New South Wales. It is also an ideal stop for schools with a curriculum which encourages students to think about the foundations of the technology they use today.

    The Museum of Printing is downstairs at the New England Regional Art Museum in Armidale, New South Wales, Australia. 

    Open Thurs. & Fri. 10.30am – 3.30pm and by appointment.


    106-114 Kentucky Street, South Hill, New South Wales, 2350, Australia
