  • An interesting venue to spend 30 to 60 minutes in and learn something new at the same time. Only 4 EUR/adult for entry and the tour, can't really argue with that. I was most impressed that a lot of the paper making equipment was still largely functional after all this time and a number of floods.
  • Cute little museum on the history of paper making in Amalfi. Shows the machines and demonstrations of how to make paper. Gift shop has nice paper gifts. Museum is not handicap accessible
  • Cute little museum but not that interesting.
  • Fun museum showing the various ways paper used to be made right in Amalfi. Great for the engineering minded. Good activity past all of the shopping in Amalfi.
  • This place is awesome. Though away from the touristy center of town, it is well worth the hike up hill to learn how rag paper was made a thousand years ago
