Typewriter Museum

The typewriter was invented in Parcines.
 
One of the greatest achievements for the world of IT and the computer was undoubtedly the invention of the typewriter. The prototype was developed here in Parcines by Peter Mitterhofer.

The visitor is first brought into contact with the culture of writing in general, and afterwards to the various kinds of typewriters. Next to the first examples from the year 1874 there is Mitterhofer's version, called after him, as well as many other models including the mysterious cipher machines from the World Wars, foreign-language typographs, rarities like the world-famous "Malling Hansen", the most expensive typewriter in the world, standing next to many other unusual models. Typographs for the blind, stenography-machines and phonographs complete the ample permanent exhibition, that is thematically arranged throughout the 4 floors of the museum.
The latest exhibit is the smallest typewriter in the world, from China, which is about the size of a pocket watch.
