The Gutenberg Museum

The Gutenberg Museum is where hey hold lots of things to do with printing and books. Mainz is was where are the first Bible/Book was printed.

We got to see a demonstration using one of the old printing presses. It was 300 years old. and the Museum was very big. We didn't get too explored all. We will have to come back another day to look at everything.

 Fun fact “ did you know that each Gutenberg bible was individual”. The individual bits where the decorations around the writing. The printing press did the black and monks coloured in the nice bits and gold leaves. So you could ask what you wanted painted around to writing.
