Gutenberg Museum, Mainz Reviews

  • A bit too old fashion museum with the architecture of the 60’s, the concrete columns, wooden ceilings and carpet floors. Maybe too long the books part and too short the machine part. I think some videos or explanations will help rather than the necessary but expensive (3,5€) audio guide. I give it a 4 because of the show with a copy of the original printer explained in detailed by one really friendly worker. If you don’t want to see the museum at least try to see this show.

  • Worth a visit if you're in Mainz. Conveniently located right in the city center. They have an amazing collection of old books including one of the first printed Bible's. They have printing presses on display for viewing. They do demonstrations almost every hour and show you exactly how it works. Enterance is only 5€ and an auto guide was only 3€. Very interesting research books on how they thought things were back then. Some different than they are now.

  • This place was very interesting. A great piece of world history in the beautiful city of Mainz. It had a pretty cool gift shop too.

  • Wonderful museum. Very interesting. Lots of information.

  • The Gutenberg Museum is one of the oldest museums of printing in the world, located opposite the cathedral in the old part of Mainz, Germany. It is named after Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of printing from movable metal type in Western Europe. The collections include printing equipment and examples of printed materials from many cultures.
