  • Very well organized, the ticket price (€7 well paid) includes a guided tour with friendly and professional staff. See how to make a sheet of paper was really fascinating, even more so see and understand the process of creating the watermark. It was a bit like a kid again, with more awareness than art, passion and tradition there are in every single piece of paper Fabriano. At the end of your visit you will also find a very nice card, where you can buy handmade cards and even decorated bookmarks under your eyes by a skilled artisan.

  • Interactive Museum for whose visit is necessary to guide (inquire in advance about the times when there are guided tours-ticket price is equal-so you can enjoy all the explanations). The guy who drove us to discover the world of paper was very good: knowledgeable, fun, valuable explanations. The ticket is not cheap (7 euro), but the visit being in Fabriano is absolutely worth it.

  • The most beautiful Museum that you can Visit in the City
  • Great historical place!!
  • A lot to see, plenty of history.
  • The visit is carried out with a guide that explains the history of paper and machinery that in several centuries were invented to improve the production process. The most interesting part was the explanation of the watermark, methods to achieve it and its uses (eg. To make banknotes). The visit takes about 1:30 minutes. Then my daughter 8 years participated in a workshop lasting approximately 30 minutes during which you made your own sheet of paper. Only downside: lack references to industrial and contemporary element of the paper. It would have been interesting if the Museum had organized a final chapter in the visit with illustration industrial aspects of the production process.

  • Very interesting Museum which also shows pretty much how it is produced the high quality paper of Fabriano, is an uncrowded place that also includes laboratories for trying to make his own son of paper! Recommended!
