Museum Open House

Take a short drive north of the city to visit Platen Press Museum, a featured location from the film Pressing On: The Letterpress Film (Screening at Music Box Theatre on Sept. 19), and meet the proprietor Paul Aken, featured in the film. It's an Open House, and you can explore this unique collection — a non-traditional, working museum where you can touch everything — to see working, hot metal linecasting machines, a large miniature press collection, cases of type, rows of presses, and learn more about the history of print. Demonstrations scheduled throughout the day.
