Niagara Parks – Mackenzie Printery & Newspaper Museum

In this restored home of rebel publisher William Lyon Mackenzie, visitors can get their hands dirty with a working linotype and eight different operating heritage presses.

The oldest wooden press in Canada remains one of the museum’s most important treasures. A walk through this beautiful home promises to take you through 500 years of printing technology.
