The Museum Plantin-Moretus is happy to put its knowledge at your disposal. Our reading room welcomes researchers every day. We can also provide you with a list of possible dissertation topics. Our library is online, as are the collections of the Museum and Print Cabinet. For typographical courses, we recommend the Plantin Institute.
In our reading room you can consult numerous authentic documents. You will find a precious archive of printed works, manuscripts and drawings.
Digitisation is central to the management of the Museum Plantin-Moretus’ extensive collection. Using the online search modules, you can search our digital databases. In this way, you can reserve books, documents, drawings or prints that you wish to consult in the reading room.
The study of books, the graphic arts, historic homes, public relations... all are fields in which the Museum Plantin-Moretus excels. Our employees write articles, organise exhibitions, produce catalogues and attend scientific conferences. Moreover, the Museum often collaborates in academic research.
Every exhibition introduces you to a different part of the collection. And exhibition catalogues then present the ideal selection of the items displayed. They elucidate the most attractive and interesting aspects of the exhibition in images and words. Buy the catalogues to assemble all that’s finest from the collection.
