Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An incredibility interesting place to visit in Penrith, highlighted by the personal stories told by the staff who are retired from the industry. What will happen when they go, with nobody coing through as its all done so differently now is anybodies guess :(

A small museum with a lot to see: I was lucky to visit on one of their open days when they were busy setting up then running one of the presses. It was intriguing. All the people there knew so much about printing. I could ask questions and hear their stories. They showed me the big drawers of metal letters for each font, the large letters in metal type for headlines, the different presses, historic photos, and printed samples of work.

A wonderful museum full of printing machines and associated material. A fantastic lecture by the volunteers who obviously really love what they do.

Our Probus Club visited this Museum on Monday. Everything was excellent and extremely well organised, and the talk by the volunteers was terrific. It was all so entertaining and educational, they turned what some had feared might be slightly boring into a wonderful morning at a venue which we were all loath to leave. All the machines are in working order and were demonstrated, along with many interesting historical facts, interspersed with some good hearted banter between the compositors vs the printers!
Sincere thanks to every one of the very knowledgeable Museum volunteers.

The volunteers who show you the various wonderful pieces of machinery, photos and printing samples are truly amazing and inspirational. They are passionate about it. Come and see the original Penrith Press printing machine. It is truly fascinating.

Very, very interesting. The talks were very informative. I thought is was amazing & loved our visit. To see the machinery still working was awesome, hard to imagine after using a computer & how quick that is, compared to how long it must have taken all those years ago. I would recommend a visit for any age group. Kids of today would do well taking a visit to see just how mush work went into printing all those years ago. Quite an eye opener. Thank you again guys.

This museum is a beautiful small print-house it resembles the local newspaper production from 1940 still operating by volunteers.
