  • With the help of the expert guides we take a tour from the Middle Ages to the present day for the production of paper. It seems obvious and trivial but it is not at all from the location of the factory, which must be on a continuous and consistent jet waterway: in the south it is not obvious... Then you go through all the stages, which you can touch with your hand, and that lead up to the finished product, which can also be purchased next to the ticket office. The paper, very refined, is close to nibs and inks, to define what environment we are talking about....

  • This is actually a really unique and interesting place to visit. It’s not exactly what I envisioned doing when I Amalfi, but I came here for a class and we all had an interesting time and were fascinated with what we learned. You learn how to make paper and can write in that fancy ink. It’s definitely unlike any other museum you’ll visit which makes it well worth it.
  • Extremely interesting and interactive! The guide had a great sense of humor and was willing to answer any and all questions. I would highly recommend if you are in the area!
