The Printing Museum
Print a Copy of the Declaration of Independence at the Printing Museum
Indulge your inner typography nerd at this wonderfully niche museum devoted to the history, science, and art of printing. To get the most out of it, book in for a guided tour (still only $7 at time of writing), where you get to take part in printing a leaf of the Gutenberg Bible (pulled from a replica press) before printing a copy of the Declaration of Independence on a 19th-century Columbian iron hand press. If you’re feeling inspired, book on the silkscreen printing add-on and you get to print your very own T shirt with a museum design. Fun!
