The Museum of Writing and Printing has been located in a medieval little church founded by the Teutonic Order at the turn of the 14th century. In the 16th century the church passed into the administration of the Evangelical community. In the 1920s the church was deprived of its sacral function. In 1930 was entered into the register of monuments as a Grade I listed building. After World War II, the church fell into ruin. Only in the 1960s and 1970s, there were attempts to located a communal library in the building of the church. However, the work started at the beginning of the 1980s and it was stopped half in its way. As a result, the monument was seriously vandalized.
The Museum is also the seat of the Art Temple Foundation. Together, they form a center devoted to history and art. The seat of the Foundation is to become a place where history combines with the present day.
