Leading Ladies Tour

guided tour for adults

The house and the family-owned company survived for three hundred years. This was largely the work of a group of strong, emancipated women.

Their names are Martina Plantin (1550 – 1616), Anna Goos (1627 – 1691), Anna-Maria de Neuf (1654 – 1714) and Maria-Theresia Borrekens (1728 – 1797). They managed the company for long periods of time, guaranteeing its continuity.

The 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.
