  • Excellent museum which outlines the history of printing. I haven't seen so many old books. The exhibition demonstrates the creation of books from rewriting to printing out nuances and details. This is the cell of the monk-correspondent together with the monk (wax), and printing machines. The first books of Belarus are presented in the subjects, and editions of F. Skaryna and Simeon Polotsky are presented (if we can talk about it as publications). You can see the authentic illustration, the design of ancient books. There is an old class with desks, a huge globe, a library. This is a museum that will be interesting for both adults and children. I've never seen a story in this format. It is necessary to visit, but necessarily with excursions or at least with an audio guide!!!! Simply wandering around such a museum will be somewhat meaningless and uninteresting.
