Preservation of intangible cultural heritage

Founded in 1994, the Museum für Druckkunst in Leipzig-Plagwitz presents the cultural heritage of printing technology in all its facets. On four floors, visitors can experience 550 years of printing history. Around 90 functioning machines can be used by artists and interested visitors.

Conceived as a museum to preserve tradition, the Museum für Druckkunst Leipzig has developed into an active place of encounter. This transformation is also reflected in the website we developed.
