Group guided tours

Do you like a clear story? With attention to relevant details and interesting facts? Then a Museum tour with a city guide may be perfect for you.

During this time, we must do everything we can to prevent the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 and to protect risk groups. Therefore, group visits and guided tours are temporarily unavailable.

Museum Plantin-Moretus offers you three different tours.

Christoffel Plantin - manager of the year 1572

Meet the visionary publisher Christoffel Plantijn. Find out about the life and work of the ambitious Plantijn and Moretus printing families. Upstairs you discover a number of amazing precious books which were published and printed here.

Leading ladies

The renovated museum gives you a chance to look at the Plantin-Moretus family and the Officina Plantiniana firm from a fresh perspective, notably that of the woman who lived and worked here. Enter the world of the hard working, determined and entrepreneurial Moretus ladies.

The Guerrilla Tour

Is the museum definitely not the thing for your pupils? Try the guerrilla tour, in which your progress through the house is peppered with juicy stories, creative interventions, and cool and fun facts about the family and the printing business.
