The International Printing Museum, in Carson, California, has one of the largest collections of antique printing presses in the United States. David Jacobson of Gutenberg Expositions and collector Ernest A. Lindner started the museum in 1988 to house the Lindner collection of antique printing machinery. The museum's collection includes a replica Gutenberg press; the third oldest printing press made in America; and printing presses from the age of Mark Twain. The museum has a Ben-Franklin-type printing press on a trailer that travels to schools and public events. The museum consults for Hollywood and has provided rentals of vintage printing presses for numerous television and movie productions.
