museums, Mainz: 21 reviews and 35 photos
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.
Directions: Very close to the Dom
