Craft and industry

The collection of the department includes, among others, engines and drills, but also other items associated with production, e.g. a candle production line of the company A. Rothe, one of the most interesting exhibits.

A large part of the collection consists of machinery associated with craft – different types of printing machines, machine tools, lathes, industrial motors, generators, etc. The most valuable and the most interesting objects are a text casting monotype, a hot stamping printer – a device for gilding and hot stamping, linotypes H14 and H7, a Boston-style printing press or a wooden lathe.
