I didn't expect to get much out of this place, but it proved to be really engrossing with amazing and lovely old writing machines of every type dating back to the mid-late 1800s. Very well worth a visit

I think of museums being mostly old stuff but this has a lot of new things too. Typewriters are a big feature. It is really more like an art gallery than a museum. The name is a bit off putting because you may think it...More
