Typography Museum

Unique in Greece, the Museum of Typography is dedicated to the art that changed the course of history. The Greek word “τυπογραφία” means both typography and printing and the museum itself involves both arts. It is located in Chania, at the the Industrial Park of Souda and consists of two large wings, and three individual halls covering an area of approximately 1,200 s.m.

The “soul” of the museum is a unique man, Yannis Garedakis -also creator and founder of the local newspaper “Haniotika Nea”- and his wife Heleni. These two special persons created the museum, that first started as a private collection.

The museum first opened its doors to the public at 2005 and a few years later, at 2012 it added a new wing. At 2015 he completed 10 years of operation and inaugurated another hall with rare editions, books dated from 1543 and later, engravings, woodcuts, etc…
Since 2012 Typography Museum is a member of the Association of European Printing Museums (AEPM).
