Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

The Crandall Historical Printing Museum is a non-profit IRS approved 501(c)(3) charitable and educational foundation. Over 30,000 annual patrons come from public and private schools, colleges, universities, professional groups, travel agencies, and corporations along with individuals from churches, senior citizen groups, youth organizations, and families to enjoy its offerings.

As visitors to the Crandall Museum learn through hands-on experience the methods of invention and printing, they also are taught by expert docents the significant impact printing has had on world history. This story is seldom told or preserved, even in the school systems. The process of re-discovery of these printing methods at the museum has also helped to uncover new understandings of the past and develop greater insights and appreciations of the inventors, philosophers and printers that have so shaped our current events. Outreach programs, community events, research, publication and academic support are part of the museum's educational mission.

The museum story begins with the first implements of writing and carries the patron through the time tunnel of significant events and documents to the period of the invention of printing as it is known today. These time travelers learn of the lives and works of the ancient writers through the historical periods of the Reformation, the Incunabula, the founding of America, the Westward Movement, and, finally, the world of today's mass communications.

The Crandall Historical Printing Museum's mission is to cultivate educational and spiritual development by providing comprehensive "living documentaries" of the evolution of the written and printed word, including its impact on civilization while fostering an understanding of the providential orchestrating of these inventions.
