  • Very instructive guided tour, conducted with expertise, sympathy and irony. They gave us the opportunity to try to make a sheet of paper: priceless! There is the possibility to buy products such as letterpaper, paper frames decorated with real flowers, beautiful tickets and many other things. Absolutely to visit!

  • The name, however relevant, presupposes something static and contemplative. Instead, the visit to the paper museum is a journey into the past and into ancient and fascinating crafts. The guide has brought us into the history of this craft that was practiced in Amalfi from the Middle Ages to the present day. We had the chance to make a sheet as it was produced so many years ago. My son, even, was interested in a topic without the appeal of a playstation. Highly recommended

  • This is actually a really unique and interesting place to visit. It’s not exactly what I envisioned doing when I Amalfi, but I came here for a class and we all had an interesting time and were fascinated with what we learned. You learn how to make paper and can write in that fancy ink. It’s definitely unlike any other museum you’ll visit which makes it well worth it.
  • Extremely interesting and interactive! The guide had a great sense of humor and was willing to answer any and all questions. I would highly recommend if you are in the area!
