view web site ›'s insider take:

You don't have to be a bibliophile to be intrigued by Europe's oldest industrial printing house—UNESCO wouldn't have granted it World Heritage status for nothing. Above all, this museum is a gorgeously preserved window on the late 16th century. The displays trace the history of printing—both the technology of the presses and binding, and the glory of the antique books themselves—through the 300 amazing years that came after Gutenberg started producing Bibles. Rubens became a friend to this family of printers in its third generation and was responsible for several of the portraits on display, as well as the illuminations in some of the manuscripts.

Closed Monday.
