Australia's working and teaching museum of typography and printing located at Footscray, Victoria. Specialising in retention of traditional printing, both the equipment and the knowledge.


As with most heritage organisations and museums, volunteering at MMOP is an essential part of the operation. Here, Frank and Laura are sorting a stack of type-cases.

Volunteers at MMOP can develop a 'specialty' among the many tasks, for example working with books, documents, types, matrices, engravings, machines, cabinetry. [Not all of these are active at present.] But whatever their specialty, each one comes to the showroom to be a guide when more visitors show up.
