TYPA Printing and Paper Art Center can be called a veteran of the Aparaaditehas, as it has been operating here since its rebirth. Today, the center has moved from the Aparaaditehas premises to the courtyard of the neighboring Samelin boot factory, but they are still a part of the Aparaaditehas
The centuries-old (working!) printing presses and colorful tours through the history of printmaking are just one part of the museum's activities. In addition, they produce notebooks and storage boxes hidden between the covers of old books that have become legendary, host artists in residence, and organize exhibitions.
TYPA Printing and Paper Art Center is open to visitors from Wednesday to Sunday from 12:00 to 18:00. They also welcome visitor groups outside of opening hours, including in the evenings, but groups should make a reservation in advance.
A single ticket (€10, with a discounted ticket of €5 for pensioners and students) includes a guided tour of the museum for one hour. During the visit, they introduce the history of printmaking in Europe, show their collection of wooden and lead typefaces, and talk about different printing presses and bookbinding.
