Wandering down a side street I stumbled across La Imprenta Municipal-Artes del Libro which is a building dedicated to the history of printing books which is open to the public.

There is a permanent exhibition about the history of printing and graphic arts on the ground floor with an array of printing presses and machines dating from the mid-16th century. Looking at these cumbersome and labour intensive printing presses it makes you realize how we take today’s technology such as computers and lazer printers for granted. When I was visiting there was also a temporary exhibition about Clandestine Literature telling the history of illegal printing houses producing literature during Franco’s ban on book publishing.

Entry is free and I would recommend a visit to this building if you are in the centre of Madrid. Indeed, stumbling upon this building was a lucky find - even if the temporary exhibition has finished the permanent exhibition is fascinating.

The building is open Tuesday to Friday 10am to 8pm and on Saturdays 10am to 2pm. The nearest Metros are Sol, Tirso de Molina and Latina.

Madrid has many small, uncrowded museums that are wonderful, for example this one, where various machinery from the history of printing, publishing, engraving, lithography and book binding since the 16th century is displayed, they also show engravings, books and all kinds of objects that were used for these activities. The temporary exhibitions are very interesting, I always pay attention because I love them. recommendable

Although I had references. Historical printing material. The building has architectural interest and the visit itself is instructive. There is a space for children.

Small museum with a permanent exhibition on the ground floor that tells the history of printing as well as its evolution. There is an audiovisual didactic. On the first floor they have temporary exhibitions.
