TYPA centre (formerly The Estonian Print and Paper Museum) is located in an old industrial compound in Tartu's city center, in formal boot factory.
TYPA is a private museum-studio and the only print-related heritage institution in the whole region. We strive to keep the machines in our collection running and pass on the skills & know-how of traditional letterpress printing, binding and other related activities.
In TYPA you will find historic machinery on permanent display, a gallery with temporary exhibitions, a selection of hand made designer notebooks and sketchbooks for sale, a curious book nook, an occasional visiting artist working in the studio and host of young enthusiastc employees & volunteers. Well worth the visit we think
