National Print Museum - Guided Tour

Learn everything there is to know about the ancient craft of printing with a guided tour of the National Print Museum.

Johannes Gutenberg revolutionised the world with the invention of the printing press in 1439.


You can view one of the most historical printed documents in Ireland being the 1916 Proclamation which was read out on the steps of the GPO (General Post Office) during the 1916 rising and discover the fascinating story in how this iconic Irish artefact was created.


Your tour guide will give you a demonstration showing how printing was carried out throughout the last few centuries.


The main collection itself is not behind glass or rope but instead is an example of a working collection.

You can interact with this collection by composing your very own name in type and printing a personalised poster to take home with you.
