  • The museum is about 200 meters higher than the main Street, a pleasant walk and worth visiting. In the price of the ticket is included also the guide, the path is pleasant and fast, but above all really curious, interesting to see how the paper was produced and know that Amalfi a time not too far away was one of the major producers of this Precious good. In the end, you can buy beautiful Pennines, stamps for and with lacquer wax and also the precious paper with the iconic water mark of Amalfi.

  • A nice, pleasant and instructive way to spend an hour in Amalfi (a fortiori If you have young children). Quick visit; The museum is small but the guide explains in a short time everything you need to know about the subject. Recommended.

  • For only 4 Euros you'll discover interesting stuff about the famous Amalfi paper (made using cotton instead of trees!! It's a luxury paper still used by Vatican I'm their official documents!!). Museum is interactive (hands in) so you'll be able to make your paper!! Really cool. And you'll be able to see how old machines worked. Staff very nice and English speaking. Suggested!!!
  • Cheap but interesting guided tour of old paper mill. Nice gift shop as well.
