  • As a paperholic and maker of origami, this is my all time favorite museum! It is a smallish place, but It is so full of paper facts (and trivia) that I have visited three times and still haven't learned it all! To those paper-lovers and people with a curiousity for all things, enjoy your visit!
  • FREE and extremely interesting. Staffed by knowledgeable former Crane employees. Watch the pape rmaking demonstration. Fascinating old building.
  • Very interesting to learn about making the paper forvand security controls imbedded in our currency by this family owned company in its sixth generation. Paul Revere ordered the paper for the first US currency from Crane. Also interesting are the many samples of stationery and greeting cards ordered by our presidents and numerous celebrities. Lastly, take the opportunity to load up on the bargain stationery in the discount store.
  • Very well presented and informative. Great enthusiastic guides. Check them out.
  • This was a short field trip for us but the kids loved it. The gentleman working there was so good with our 6 and 3 yr olds. He kept them interested and didn't seemed bothered at all by them wanting to continuously make stamped paper prints. They have some pretty historical pieces of paper- invitations to the Statue of Liberty dedication from 1886, inaugurations, Queens anniversaries etc.....very interesting.
