  • Guided tour with a friendly and very knowledgeable guide. We could see several ancient paper-making machinery and the various stages of processing. Very interesting and informative!

  • A lot of passion and a lot of information on the card. How did, how do you and you see that over directly manufactured until the middle of the 800. Many stories and trivia on banknotes.

  • I was in Fabriano to visit the art gallery and having time I went to visit this museum ... magnificent experience! The tour accompanied by a very knowledgeable Lady explaining step by step creation and production of paper with a master card player who showed us in real time how to produce some sheets. In the upper floor there are various rooms where you can admire hundreds of watermarks details created in different decades. I especially recommend to families to visit this museum if you're in the area. Highly recommended!
