  • Way more interesting than it sounds. Museum is full of Rubens paintings, sketches and etchings. Also gives a very thorough and clear overview of the old printing process and how they needed to work together with different artists.

  • The museum shows the factory and house of one of Antwerps most influential families. Nice to visit, particularly for those interested in print history. There’s plenty of very well conserved machines and you get to try for yourself.

  • Nice place to learn about the printing press history. The films about how books were made were fantastic. It can get a little creepy when you hear cracking noise from people walking on the floor above.

  • Well preserved house of the family Plantin. Good and extensive information about printing. All you want to know also about fonts. Nice paintings of Rubens.

  • If your a designer, interested in type or just want to understand more about printing, this museum is a must. Fabulous place.
