Volunteers are always on hand during Museum open hours to interpret and demonstrate the Marshfield Sun's presses and other printing equipment, as well as to answer questions about the Museum's exhibits on printing and office technology, and on local history. You can even find out why capital letters are called "upper case" and other letters are called "lower case."

    The Marshfield Sun Printing Museum is a unique printing museum located at the north end of Front Street on Coos Bay's historic waterfront. The Marshfield Sun was a working newspaper office and print shop from 1891 to 1944 and is today essentially as it was left in 1944, with additional exhibits upstairs and on the walls.
