The museum's most valuable exhibit is a unique mid-19th century printing machine from the Vienna machine factory founded in 1836 by Christian Leo Müller and Friedrich Helbig.

It is the only machine of its kind to have survived to the present day. It was salvaged by Kazimierz Pajerski, a printer from Nowy Targ, and donated to the museum together with numerous prints and pamphlets, which were stored first in the Regional Museum of the Nowy Targ (Muzeum Regionalnym Ziemi Nowotarskiej), and later in the Czesław Pajerski Museum of Podhale (Muzeum Podhalańskim imienia Czesława Pajerskiego) in Nowy Targ. The museum has recreated the former printing house on the model of the plant run by Ignacy Bork since 1898. Original machines and equipment allow visitors to learn about old printing techniques and processes. The exhibition, which consists of an impressive collection of old prints and photographs as well as interactive applications, will provide an insight into the cultural, social, political and economic life of Nowy Targ in the early 20th century. The museum runs educational workshops.
