Join us for Hot Metal Day, Saturday, February 1st! Watch demonstrations on the Linotype Model 31 by our friend, Michael Babcock, of Interrobang Letterpress. Cast your name, a favorite word or emoji in hot metal on the Ludlow. Print a keepsake with us in the Letterpress Studio.


Learn about the history of the Linotype and Ludlow from Museum President, Frank Romano (lectures at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.).


See Doug Wilson’s movie, Linotype: The Film (showings at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.).


Learn how the Linotype changed the world. Take time to see our rare 1883 second prototype called the Second Band Machine, and a 1972 Elektron II, the last model Linotype built. Check out all the Linotype specimen books and a cabinet full of unique Linotype artifacts in the Romano Library.

Fun for all ages!
