Lamentably this museum has closed. I had visited Burgos and looked forward to visiting this Museum. When I tried to visit, I was told that it had closed in July for good.

A quirky little museum set on four floors in a narrow house (there is an elevator) telling the history of books from clay tablets through illuminated medieval manuscripts, the invention of the printing press to contemporary ereaders and tablets. The company behind the museum specializes in making exact reproductions of historical books, some of which are on display. Only 3 euros and worth every cent.

I had an hour to kill in Burgos, and the book lover in me brought me here. Really interesting, and the facsimiles are excellent. Worth an hour of your time.

This was a great little museum. At first I was confused about which were "real" books (as in "really old") but then saw how the reproductions were mixed with some of the antiques. Its a very smart layout that gives a good history lesson in the rise of literacy and print. Shows the impact of writing and printing and bookmaking on the history of human cultures.

Apart from taking you through the printed word from the beginning I was also really impressed by the fascimiles made by the company which sponsors the exhibition. Their work was amazing!
