The Plantin-Moretus Museum printing offices, workshop, library and printing room have all been preserved in their original state and offer a unique insight in the living and working conditions at this thriving printing and publishing house.
Intact. Ready to roll. There they stand, the oldest printing presses in the world. The entire workshop of the world-famous printing works is still there, after 440 years, as if the working day is about to begin for the compositors, type founders, printers and proof-readers at any moment.
Some of the museum's highlights include an original Gutenberg Bible, the world's two oldest printing presses and multi-language Plantin Polyglot Bible with Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek and Syriac texts.
