La Capital Newspaper Museum

It holds an interactive editorial room and exhibit rooms.

La Capital is the grandfather of Argentine newspapers, having been founded by Ovidio Lagos on November 15th 1867. Its history is kept in this Museum, that, among other objects, holds the manual printing press used to print the first issue of the newspaper, together with all six parts of the Gross rotary printing press (each of which weighs 25 tons), made in the USA and used as of 1937 to print the now traditional broadsheet edition. Additionally, visitors may see all the devices that were necessary for the printing process to take place: Linotypes®, labeling machines, metal types and matrices.
