  • We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this wonderful museum. Although overwhelmed with school groups, the friendly museum staff arranged for us to have a private tour (in Italian) with Maestro Federico, who could not have been more engaging and informative. He also took us through the paper making process. Pay the extra four euro, it is well worth it. If you have any interest whatsoever in history or Italian handmade products, you will love the experience.
  • My visit to the Paper and Watermark Museum in Fabriano was wonderful. I attended the museum with a group, and our guide, Francesca, was very interesting and wanted us to be hands on when explaining the process of paper making. We were shown not only how handmade paper has been made in the past, but the history behind how it has evolved and how they now produce it. Great establishment, I would recommend stopping if you are in the area.
