Museum Meermanno | Huis van het boek (vroeger Meermanno-Westreenianum) is het oudste boekenmuseum ter wereld. Het is gevestigd in het voormalige woonhuis van de stichter van het museum Willem Hendrik Jacob baron van Westreenen van Tiellandt (1783-1848) aan de Prinsessegracht in Den Haag en richt zich op het geschreven en gedrukte boek in al zijn vormen, in heden en verleden. De ontwikkeling van de vormgeving van zowel oude als moderne boeken staat daarbij centraal.

Workshops


Workshops

Museum Meermanno offers a number of special workshops which combine theory with practice. You might like to combine this with a guided tour and a cup of coffee.


SCRIPTORIUMWORKSHOP

In this activity, you will put on a monk’s habit and take part in a calligraphy course using a real goose quill pen. The programme can be enhanced with the use of gold leaf.


PRINTING WORKSHOP

Museum Meermanno has its own printing facilities. In this activity, a text is created by the group and then set in type and printed on one of our presses.


PAPER MAKING WORKSHOP

It’s no surprise that paper is an important part of a book museum.  During the workshop ‘Paper making’ you will be able to create your own paper.  There’s quite a lot involved before you have your self-made paper in your hands; little snippets, flowers, glitter, feathers or threads can all be worked into it.  The paper has to dry overnight - we’ll send it on to you afterwards. 


NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS

Maximum of 20 people per group (if there are more than 20 people, the group will be divided in half).

LENGTH

The workshop lasts 60 minutes.

PRICES

The workshop costs € 10 per person (minimum ten participants, € 100).
