A museum dedicated to the Plantin-Moretus publishing house and printing press.
This medieval building is the home of the publishing house and printing press founded by the 16th-century printer Christophe Plantin (1520 to 1589) and later run by the Moretus family. In 1876, it was turned into a museum.
Make sure you see the world’s oldest printing press and the works by Anthony van Dyck and Peter Paul Rubens. Before you leave, explore the 17th-century garden and library as well as an 18th-century bookshop.
