Mackenzie Printery and Newspaper Museum

mackenzie printery


Located in the home of the 19th Century firebrand editor, Toronto’s first mayor William Lyon Mackenzie, The Mackenzie Printery and Newspaper Museum is Canada’s largest working printing Museum.

Rebel William Lyon Mackenzie lived in Queenston in the 1820s and operated his publishing operation here.

Discover 500 years of printing technology inside the restored home. Don’t miss the rare Louis Roy Press, the oldest printing press in Canada and one of the few original wooden presses remaining in the world. The press was used to print Ontario’s first newspaper “the Upper Canada Gazette or American Oracle,” and it printed some of Canada’s earliest laws including the “Act Against Slavery” in 1793.

The home of William Lyon Mackenzie was reconstructed from ruins and opened in 1938 by Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King, Mackenzie’s great-grandson.
