The Plantin Moretus Museum is located at the Vrijdagmarkt in Antwerp, Belgium.
The Museum is the only printing-office/publisher from the Renaissance- and Barokperiod that is kept till this day. Plantin Moretus is the continuation of the Officina Plantiniana, founded in 1555 by Christoffel Plantin, the first industrial printer in history.
The unique typographic treasure chamber holds two of the world's oldest printing presses.
The old library houses the most complete overview of the Officina Plantiniana's production from the 16th to the 19th century.
