Plantin-moretus Museum, Antwerp Reviews

Google+
  • Highly recommended! Waitress was very lovely. Guiding book free and accurate . Prepare yourself by saving 2.5 to 3.5 hours. LONG LIFE TO BOOKS

  • Being a book lover and working in publishing industry, it was obvious that I was going to like it. But this one went beyond expectations in the organization, presentation and the amount of information available. The English language guide book is amazingly detailed and nicely put together. There are folding chairs available that you can carry to sit-down once your feet start crying. The exhibits are well selected and present a vivid picture of what it meant to be one of the pioneering publishers in 16th century Europe.

  • Amazing historic building worth seeing in it's own right. Full of original features such as the leather stamped wall coverings and leadlight windows. Downstairs has a few printing presses and tools. There is the original shop and a few grand libraries. The book displays, what was printed and export of the works is all of great interest.

  • Best museum I've visited in Antwerp. The information they give you makes the visit even richer.

  • One of the more unique museum I've been to. Tells the history of how the print industry evolved in Antwerp through the story of the Plantin family business. The house is very beautiful and the descriptions and videos are interesting. As a bonus we got a passionate introduction to the museum from a very nice lady, one of the volunteers who work there.
