  • 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!
  • Very cool to escape the heat. The walk through town shows you all of Amalfi. Lots of history at the paper mill
  • This is a very good museum. It is worth to buy the ticket. They have guided tour which is really interactive. They have several paper maker machines. All of them are working. The oldest is from the 13rd century if i am right. (Awesome! I am a mechanical engineer 🙂). The tourist guide was kind and funny he showed the details for us and he involved the audience to make paper. That was the best museum where i was in Italy ( better than Archeological musuem in Naples). The entrance fee was 4,5€ which absolutely worth🙂 I can just recommend this place! 🙂 The staff were very kind.
  • Interesting tour with the possibility to create paper as it was done decades ago. All machines still able to run - impressive!
