The Museum of Printing is located in the former apartment building in the very centre of St. Petersburg. The history of building No. 32 along the Moyka river embankment is associated with the Russian printing and publishing of the beginning of the 20th century. This place hosted editorial offices of the newspapers Rus’, St. Petersburg Vedomosti, Selsky Vestnik, and, from March to July 1917, the editorial office of the Pravda newspaper.
In 1984, the Lenin and Pravda Newspaper Memorial Museum opened here, which in 1991 was transformed into the Museum of Printing, a department of The State Museum of the History of St. Petersburg.
The museum has preserved and recreated historical interiors (the editorial offices, a printing room) and presents the printing equipment of the second half of the 19th century.
The exhibition is thematically divided into three parts: the history of printing in St. Petersburg in the 18th century, publishing business and printing of the beginning of the 20th century and a music salon.
