About Typewriter Museum 'Peter Mitterhofer'
Peter Mitterhofer from Parcines - Partschins invented the typewriter in 1864.
The evolution of the typewriter is among the most interesting chapters of the history of technology. Without this means of technical assistance, our economic, cultural, and private life as we know it would be unimaginable. The collection of the Typewriter Museum includes over 1300 objects from 1864 to 1980, on display on the museum’s four floors. Particular attention is paid to the inventor of the typewriter, Peter Mitterhofer (1822-1893) from Partschins (Parcines), to whom the community of Partschins dedicated this museum in 1997.
