    Gutenberg Museum

    by bonio Written Apr 11, 2003

    Gutenberg was the man who invented printing as we know it. He produced the first printed book (Bible naturally) an removed the need for them to be written out longhand.
    The museum is full of printing exhibits old and new, the oldest and original Gutemberg ones are kept in a strong room but are still available to see. Found it interesting to see that really the process had not changed too dramatically until the advent of the computer. Well worth the €3 entrance fee. English (and other languages too) translation booklets are in each room.

    Fantastic Museum with Roman military and civilan equipment, originals and copies of important peices from all over the world. The muesum is right on the Main River, and is one of the few buildings in the area not bombed to rubble in WW2.

    Gutenberg Museum
    it's a world-famous museum of script (hope that's the correct word) and print. It was founded in 1900 on the occasion of Johannes Gutenberg's 500th birthday.

    If you're interested in writing and printing, visit the Gutenbergmuseum. You can watch there how they printed 550 years ago. You can also see his famous bibles.
