A successful museum opening

Posted by on Apr 2, 2011 | No Comments

It’s been a week since we held our public open house, so it’s time for a little reflection. We had a wonderful turnout with well over 200 people coming by for tours and conversation. With people attending from as far as Seattle and California, families bringing their kids and retirees from the printing trade coming by to chat, we couldn’t have hoped for a more fun day–or better validation that this working museum has relevance in our community. It was such a pleasure to witness so much eagerness and excitement to see these machines running again, to understand how they work and how type metal can be used today.

We on the Board were so absorbed in conversation, meeting new people and showing off the machines that we took very few pictures. However, we noticed many people photographing the festivities, and we’re hoping you’ll share some of those pictures with us. If you’re interested, please add your photos to our Flicker site.

Thanks to all who came by and brought their friends and family. If you couldn’t make it, we hope to see you during our public hours (now the third Saturday of each month) or at a future event.
