Minnesota Newspaper Museum
The Minnesota Newspaper Museum displays and maintains historic printing presses and Linotype machines in the 4H Building on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. The volunteer newsroom staff produces a daily newspaper during the run of the Minnesota State Fair, gives demonstrations of the equipment and presentations of the history of the free press in Minnesota.
The exterior display was designed to tell the stories of two colorful Minnesota editors who exposed corruption in state and local government in Duluth and Minnesota. The interior display panels highlight key figures in Minnesota Newspaper history and provide detailed information about the printing presses and typesetting machines.
