Henty Observer Printing Museum

The Henty Observer Printing Museum is housed in the original 1934 brick building of The Observer newspaper.

Visitors can observe how the newspapers of yesteryear were printed and see how much printing has changed since then.

The museum is home to a variety of Platen machines some pre-1900, one of the original Wharfedale printing machines of 1907, a large Miehle auto printer, linotype machines, newspaper folding machines, guillotine and other printing memorabilia of historical interest.

The museum is free but donations are welcome to help preserve the past.
