How do I adequately sum up our wonderful Museum over the past 21 years. Thousands of incredible photos. Tons of wonderful memories. Today we are closed for good in Provo UT. Louis E Crandall the curator, lived his dream and it has been a huge part of Provo City for these past years. It will live on in Alpine UT for a grand re-opening sometime later this summer. Watch our website for details. crandallprintingmuseum.org.
Thanks to all who have come and attended. Thanks to our faithful docent Jim Watkins who has been giving tours there for many years now. To all who have donated, helped, sacrificed their time and love. We miss our father Louis Crandall, but us 5 his children are excited for this new chapter of the Museum to live on in the Crandall name. Thanks to the Johnson family of Alpine The Crandall Printing Museum will live on!

Thomas S Monson: The Thursday, Jan 4th edition of the Deseret News featured a great article about President Monson’s life. There are two photos of him at our Crandall Historical Printing Museum with founder Louis Crandall. We, his children, are so thankful for the time we all got to spend with Pres. Monson back in April of 2009. He absolutely didn’t want to leave that day. Come see our amazing Museum in downtown Provo.

We will miss President Thomas S. Monson dearly. We will never forget in 2009 when President Thomas S. President Monson came to our museum. I love this photo of my our Father Louis Crandall telling him that he was pulling too hard on the Devils tail of our Gutenberg printing press! We all laughed. He loved our Museum and didn’t want to leave. He will definitely be missed but what an incredible legacy and life lessons he left us!

This incredible family visited our museum and sent this for us to post! Look at this cute SMART boy! :) Come see us!

Hi Crandall folks,
OK, listen up everybody, we have just finished our family tour of the Crandall Historic Printing Museum and here are the top 10 reasons you should consider making your own appointment now:
1. Be amazed at the narration and personal knowledge of your guide. Ours was Mr. Jim Watkins and we loved his ability to communicate and make us laugh.
2. Be shocked by what you don’t know about printing. Don’t worry, Mr. Watkins does. And he shares it willingly.
3. Be impressed about the reason printer’s ink needs to be thick and gooey.
4. Be humbled by the amount of work it takes to print something.
5. Be intrigued by the historic words and phrases specific to printing that have relevance for you today. Then laugh and say, “I always wondered about that!“
6. Be ready to help operate the presses!
7. Be happy that Guttenburg loved the many challenges printing presented. He opened the eyes of the world!
8. Be ready to understand that printing has everything to do with not being in the dark ages any more.
9. Be sharp so as to leave with lots of trivia to impress your friends and neighbors.
10. Be glad that the Crandalls loved collecting this stuff and are happy to share.
Thanks so much for a wonderful family event!
Shannon and Jim Miller and family

Son-in-law Bart Dangerfield spoke, as well as a long time colleague and friend Dann W Hone! It was truly an honor!
