Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum
Two Rivers Historical Society:
We’re celebrating the History of Hamilton and enter into a new era in the preservation of American Wood Type. Printing & type cutting demos and interesting displays for the entire family.
The Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum is the only museum dedicated to the preservation, study, production and printing of wood type. With 1.5 million pieces of wood type and more than 1,000 styles and sizes of patterns, Hamilton’s collection is one of the premier wood type collections in the world. In addition to wood type, the Museum is home to an amazing array of advertising cuts from the 1930s through the 1970s, and all of the equipment necessary to make wood type and print with it, as well as equipment used in the production of hot metal type, tools of the craft and rare type specimen catalogs.
