  • The Printery was closed but we parked our car here and walked to the Brock's Monument and went down to the River. This area is gorgeous. 
  • Yes- agree with most of the high rated reviews here. We had a great host who really got into the role of a 19th century printer. They showed us a lot of the history of the place. The printing machines...  more »

  • 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
  • Very unique museum. They had a great tour and I learned a lot about printing!
  • 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.
