The MacKenzie Printery & Newspaper Museum is a unique destination that will appeal to those newshounds who have always wanted to see themselves in print.

The museum is housed in the former home of one of Canada’s most fiery editors and politicians, William Lyon MacKenzie. It lies along the Niagara Parkway, close to the Niagara River and you can reach it easily by bike, if you wish, along the Niagara River Recreational Trail.

Visitors can try their hand with a linotype printing press in this unique museum that celebrates 500 years of printing history.  The MacKenzie Printery has a working linotype and eight operating heritage presses. The coolest and rarest object in the museum’s collection is the Louis Roy Press, oldest in Canada and one of the few original wooden presses remaining in the world!

The MacKenzie Printery is open seasonally. It is not wheelcahir accessible.
