The Museum of Printing will open its doors free of charge on Saturday, September 23, 2017, as part of Smithsonian magazine’s thirteenth annual Museum Day Live!, an initiative in which participating museums across the United States emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington DC-based facilities, which offer free admission and open their doors for free. It is also the Museum of Printing’s Printing Fair.

Smithsonian recognizes the extraordinary power of museums, and other cultural institutions, to provide visitors with insight and inspiration. The event represents a nationwide commitment to boundless curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge wherever you are.

“Museum Day Live! and the Printing Fair are a wonderful way for everyone to discover their local museums,” said Museum of Printing President Frank Romano.

Admission is free and visitors can use ancient typewiters, have their name set in metal, print a certificate, and see amazing “old” tecnnology.

The Museum of Printing is located at 15 Thornton Ave., Haverhill, Mass. Come anytime betwen 10am and 4pm.
