The Press Museum, founded by the Association of Journalists of the Peloponnese - Epirus - Islands (ESIEPIN) in Patras in 1956 under President Demetris Lagarias and operates from the 28th of May 1957. Curator of the Museum served for 45 consecutive years, the journalist and author Nikos Politis, who was the curator of the Museum Press. Superintendent after Nikos Politis until 2008, was a veteran journalist and author, John Karalis. The Press Museum has 1,300 different newspaper titles from 1815 to date, contained in 900 volumes from all over Greece. Also 1,000 journals from 1852 onwards, 67 diaries of the period 1879-1970, and some rare editions and books. Impressive are historical relics as the original manuscript of the Third National Assembly at Trizina 1827 inviting the I. Kapodistrias to come to Greece and take over the governance of the country, a handwritten letter of Th. Kolokotronis, an original ticket of the first Modern Olympic Games in 1896 and more. The content of the Press Museum makes visitors “receivers”, of a great amount of data that through the newspapers and magazines published in the past until the present, are a "living proof" of history. The Museum Press, entering the modern era, has digitized a significant part in the 303,000 pages of material, which can now be accessed by Internet users at www.mouseiotipou.gr and www.pressmuseum.gr.
