The Museum was founded in 1988 by David Jacobson of Gutenberg Expositions and Ernest A. Lindner to house the Lindner Collection of Antique Printing Machinery. The collection has grown since then with significant donations and acquisitions, making the International Printing Museum the premier exhibit on printing history throughout the world.
From 1988 until 1997, the Printing Museum was located in the city of Buena Park. Following the acquisition of the Museum property by the California Department of Transportation in 1997, the collection was moved into storage while a new home was sought. The new public display opened in 1998 in the city of Carson, 20 minutes south of downtown Los Angeles. In February of 2003, the Board of Trustees for the International Printing Museum Foundation successfully raised the necessary down payment for the acquisition of the Museum property in Carson.
