Plantin-Moretus Museum World Heritage Site

Christopher Plantin (?1520-89) moved to Antwerp in 1549 from Tourcoing and became one of the foremost printers of Renaissance Europe whose products can be found in almost every library that has collections from the 16th century. His descendants, the Moretus family, continued the business until 1876, and the museum, established in the following year, comprehensively displays the technology of printing from the 16th century until the 19th. The museum is one of the best-preserved historic working environments in Europe. In 2005 the complex was listed as Unesco World Heritage Site.
