Though this is not a particularly large museum it is worth a visit. There are exhibits about the very first newspaper in Mexico (only 7 editions were published) and many examples of the early machines that were used to print newspapers.

A handsome historic one-time private home which now finds itself on a very busy city street -- but once inside you're in another world.

It is a good place to spend some time, learn about the history of news in Mexico. Great old building done in the neoclasical style. Ask around about the dogs on the roof. I wsa told about a ghost story about them by a relative, not sure if he was just messing with me, but worth it to ask around.
