Casa de la Primera Imprenta en las Américas
Conveniently located in Mexico City's Historic Center, the House of the First Print Shop in the Americas is a cultural venue dedicated to promoting cultural and educational activities related to literature and printed images, such as publications, graphic arts, books, and editorial production. It also aims at preserving the Mexican traditions around literature and press. It has various exhibition rooms, a bookstore and facilities for conferences and courses.
Printer Juan Pablos was in charge of printing in 1539 the first book printed in the New World. In 1989 it was restored by the Autonomus University of Mexico (UAM) and, since then, it has served as a continuous educational center. In 2008, this venue opened the Book Museum, with some of the oldest books in Mexico on display.
