It operates since 1952 and its exhibitions include rare editions,
newspapers since 1875, magazines from Patras
and the Peloponnese
and other documents of historic value.
One of the most important articles of the Museum is the first formal
document that the 3rd National Assembly of the Greeks sent to the first Prime
Minister of Greece, Ioannis Capodistrias (1827), signed by all fighters.
Remarkable, also, is the collection of books of the Museum. It consists
of philological, literary and travel books, as well as editions (older and new)
that refer to matters of Patras
the press, and journalism. Among the old editions are: Diodoros Sikeliotis (1604,
in Latin) and Thoucidides "About Peloponnesian War" (1696, in Greek and Latin).
The Press Museum is shielded in the Building of the Editors' Union,
in Mezonos 20 street.
