Last week we took a drive to Mainz to visit the Gutenberg museum. Johannes Gutenberg printing press was one of the most important inventions in the history of the world and was especially important in getting the Bible into the hands of common people. The museum is full of books as old as 500 years. It is amazing how vibrant the colors still are and to learn a bit about how they made books then.
I didn’t see any signs that forbade photographs, but after I snapped a few I was asked not to take any more, so this is all I got. There is a special room where they house Gutenberg’s Bibles, it was really neat to see.
There was some kind of battle of the bands going on in the town square and the boys really got a kick out of all the costumes. There were probably 10-15 different bands, they all had different costumes on and played some really fun music.
