The Dutch Press Museum aims at documenting, studying and making accessible the history of the Dutch press. The museum organizes exhibitions and symposia, and brings out publications. The history of the Dutch news service from 1600 to the present day is the theme of the regular show. The roots of the contemporary newspapers go back to the so-called Golden Age, when Amsterdam grew to be the press center of Europe. The Press Museum was established in 1902. After years of rather marginal existence, the museum was, granted a subsidy from the Department of Welfare, Public Health and Culture (now Education, Culture and Science) for the first time in 1988. Since 1989 the museum has been housed in the International Institute of Social History (IISH) building. The Dutch Press Museum works in close co-operation with the Institute.
