Fodor's Review

Guadalajara's first printing press was set up here in 1792; in 1810 it printed the first 2,000 copies of El Despertador Americano, which impelled would-be Mexicans to join the War of Independence. You can see historic newspapers, printing presses, and recording equipment in this mansion, known as the Casa de los Perros for the two wrought-iron perros (dogs) guarding its roof. The permanent collection, opened in 1994, isn't as exciting as the traveling exhibitions

of local and national press, art, and photography, which are usually on the top floor.
