The building that housed the press is now the Plantin-Moretus Museum, a printing museum which focuses ont he work of the 16th century printers Christopher Plantin and Jan Moretus; it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005. The building had been sold to the city of Antwerp in 1876 by Edward Moretus, and was opened to the public in 1877.)
