  • knowledgeable staff and great tour. You even get to try your hand at using a printing press.
  • Really learner a lot, and the guide was passionate about the period and history of printing. Setting our own type and learning about the printing process before digital camera allowed for a great experience
  • My fiance called this the highlight of our 2-day Niagara Falls trip. It's a small, almost hidden museum with very fascinating, hands-on history. For a ~$6 entrance fee, you get a few self-printed paper souvenirs, the opportunity to see/touch printing materials from the late 1800s, and a 45-minute guided tour (timing is flexible). You learn about a pivotal time in Canadian history and learn about how early newspaper printing has changed over the years. The information was well-presented, with a good amount of details (not too overwhelming and not too watered-down). If you're driving down Niagara Parkway, it's a convenient midpoint between Niagara Falls and the pretty historical town by Lake Ontario.
  • Very unique museum. They had a great tour and I learned a lot about printing!
