There are a few signs off the main road, but the museum is about a kilo up the road from the water. They claim to be the oldest paper mill in Europe. Paper that is made from pulverized cotton. They do a nice tour for 15-20 minutes on the water powered method used. You can look at the small gift... More

Take a VERY long walk up the hill from the Piazza del Duomo to find this museum (and then look hard on the left to find the entry sign). It's an old paper mill dating back to the 13th century that was in full operation, using the old equipment, up to the 1960s. You have to take the guided tour--they... More

Is a hands on experience- I got to put the screen in the vat of pulp and put the pulp on the wool felt sheet.

Amalfi’s small museum of papermaking is worth a visit if you’re looking for something to do other than strolling around town. Located toward the northern end of the main street, it’s a short walk from the town square. When we arrived, a guided tour had just started, so the ticket desk people rushed us through to catch up with the... More

This was a nice ending to our walking through the ancient paper mills. It is a modest fee and provides a fascinating bit of history. Well worth the 30-40 minutes to learn the history of paper making. Small gift shop.

Interesting to see something that has been around since 1500's. 4 Euros seems a bit high for what you get. If you have the time do it.

amalfi is a lovely city easy to walk but the best are the views of the blue and green sea, after that you can check museums like this one

The tour was pitched at just the right level of interest - not too long to get boring. Guide spoke excellent English and answered questions competently. Very interesting place to visit, it needs more advertising to make people aware it exists and where it is
