  • I visited the Museum in March 2017. We came with the turn of the guided tour and it was beautiful and interesting. In fact, the guide was witty, prepared and engaging. The Museum tells all the stages in the history of paper with practical demonstrations of ancient and modern machinery. The cost of the ticket without driving for me is high since you don't understand anything about the story, I don't know if they're available audio guides. The Museum is within easy walking distance from the old town.

  • Great historical place!!
  • A lot to see, plenty of history.
  • Unable to go to Fabriano and not visit the paper museum. Interesting guided tour with wisdom and a veil of irony pointed out the history of paper and its "cars" to achieve it. Beautiful realization of the watermark.
