  • We went by chance and were so glad we did. A fascinating museum of paper making. A real insight in to the history of life in medieval Amalfi. Helpful and informative staff 
  • Aru is one way to go from the sea is this museum. Paper is important in the old days, the record was important. It is a history of paper like those who are good. Not much as places to see more on the Amalfi, is a good place.

  • 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
  • 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
  • This was a lovely, informative little tour of an Amalfi paper mill. It was inexpensive, interesting, and they let us make some paper to take home. The shop upstairs was filled with irresistible little souvenirs.
  • So fun to learn how paper is made!
