  • Nice place to visit during your weekend.
  • This is a lesser known museum, but has some great displays that show the history of printing. Free admission to such a nicely done museum was surprising. No crowd at all on this Tueaday when I visited and had the two floors of great exhibits all for myself! Everything is explained in Enflish as well. There is also some creative art displays that kids will have fun with. Absolutely worth a visit and an hour or two spent there.
