Plantin-Moretus Museum and its collection

Plantin-Moretus Museum

Museum Plantin-Moretus is the only museum in the world that is on the Unesco World Heritage List. It is a combination of a patrician house from the 16th to 18th century, a printing company that was founded in 1550 and active until the 19th century, a collection of art and a collection of manuscripts and books. Plantin was one of the largest printer-publishers of his time and the Moretuses made baroque books. Peter Paul Rubens was one of the people who worked for them.
