Wood type was a major industry in Two Rivers back in the day, and the Hamilton Wood Type Museum preserves that! There are many different examples of wood type, machinery, and other equipment that Hamilton used to make. It's just $5 to get in, and it's worth it.
This workplace atmosphere museum has a great collection of printing pressers, print block cabinetry, samples, and items of interest. Classes are taught here, to keep a passing art alive. The people of this community are proud of this museum! Small shop to purchase some printed items and other souvenirs.
Thank you Bob Miller for providing us an awesome tour of this museum. You provided great information of the printing history along with the history of Hamilton's. Glad that it is pointed out to all who visits that Two Rivers is the birthplace of the dryer!

They also will show you how some of the equipment was used and if your willing to pay you can sign up for printing workshops and set up and print your own posters.

They used to be across from us, then Hamilton's was removed opening up acres of river front property. The museum moved into an old factory near the lake. I was amazed at how much history came about because of Hamilton Mfg. Doctor and dental equipment, washers and dryers besides wood type! well worth the $5.00 fee. (Which is to help... 更多
This place is an absolute must for anyone with an interest in graphic design or an appreciation for same. The history of wood type face and printing may sound boring to the unknowing, but this is a great visit. It makes me want to go buy an old printing press and get into the art of typeface and printing. Try... 更多
