Interactive exhibition for the 500th of the reform

Five centuries ago, Protestantism was born in Europe. For this anniversary, the International Museum of the Reformation is offering the public the opportunity to handle an old Gutenberg press built for the occasion. The Reformation of Luther and Calvin would never have succeeded without the printing press. For 128 days between June 4 and October 31, a Bible is printed entirely by hand at the heart of an exhibition which presents famous bestsellers from the 16th century. A unique interactive and cultural experience in Geneva in 2017.
