Druckladen and Living Museum
The Gutenberg-Museum in Mainz offers a rich variety of museum educational events for kids and adults such as workshops and guided tours of the Museum’s exhibitions. In open workshop areas, individuals, school classes, and small groups can get to know the history of writing, printing, and printing techniques; and they can learn about many aspects of cultural history and history of art.
The Druckladen (museum educational print shop) and the workshops at the Gutenberg-Museum offer groups and individuals of all ages a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience. With experts to guide them, they can learn about various book-related crafts and engage with their own creative expression.
The basic programme of the museum educational service is regularly complemented by a number of special events. At weekends, there are, for example, so-called Family Days which offer a programme that is especially suited for young families. But also senior citizens and all those who are interested in the Museum’s contents (nosy beginners as well as those who have already gained some experience in this field) are cordially invited to attend our weekend and holiday workshops on papermaking, letterpress printing, bookbinding, or graphic arts.
Welcome to the Druckladen of the Gutenberg-Museum! We are looking forward to your visit!
