The Book Museum in Burgos traces the history of books using an educational and entertaining approach designed to interest visitors of all ages.

Opened in 2010, the Fadrique de Basilea Book Museum is a project created by the publishing company Siloé, Arte y Bibliofilia to display facsimiles of some of the most important books and codices in history. The exhibition is divided into four sections following a chronological order: The origin of books, which focuses on the first written manifestations and the great civilisations of antiquity; The enlightened Middle Ages, covering the age of manuscripts, monasteries and universities; The Gutenberg Universe, dealing with the revolution sparked by the invention of the printing press; and The 19th and 20th centuries, tracing the evolution of books since the Industrial Revolution through to the emergence of electronic reading supports.
