The Museum Plantin-Moretus is the only printing press/publishing house worldwide which dates back to the Renaissance and Baroque period. It is the continuation of the Officina Plantiniana, founded by Christopher Plantin in 1555, the first industrial printer in history. For about 300 years his successors, the family Moretus, maintained the Officina. In 1876 it was opened as a museum. It offers a record of the art of printing from the 15th till the 18th century. The stately equipped printing press features the oldest printing presses in the world (about 1600). The magnificient patrician home includes style rooms furnished with tapestries, golden leather paintings (amongst others Rubens), sculptures, pottery and porcelain. In the historical inner courtyard you can enjoy the peaceful garden. The Museum Plantin-Moretus/Etching Cabinet was recognized as UNESCO World Cultural Heritage in 2005 and is the only museum worldwide on this list.
