Enjoyed a tour in English that was done well and helped on a very hot day as it was beautifully cool where they used to make the paper. Interesting and informative. 4 Euros per person which was reasonable- you were able to use the bathroom and browse the gift shop.

This is an amazing museum that takes the visitor through the process of making the paper that Amalfi is known for. It is something that needs to be experienced by the visitor to really appreciate the power of pen to paper that we take for granted. Also an eye opener giving rise to a conscious thought the next time you... More

Paper museum? Sounds boring but what you get is the oldest paper mill in Europe wth all the machinery still there. It has water driven pulping machines and manual presses. You even get to make your own paper from a vat of pulped linen. It's a bit of a walk up the hill from Amalfi town but well worth it.

I have a feeling most people who spend the day on the Amalfi coast don't think about visiting a paper museum that day. But I was thrilled to read about a paper museum in a guide book and so glad I went! It's a bit of a walk up through the neighborhood. You'll see more of the real town that... More

Very cool, original paper factory with a great host. It's about a 30 minute or so visit and you can make paper at the very end plus they have a little gift shop. Before or after, make sure you have lunch at Il Mulino...just down and across the road...OUTSTANDING>

We love HOW TO visits, and this is one to do . . . it is a bit of a walk up from the main town, into the quieter part of Amalfi. I am told if you walk another 800 meters you will be in lemon groves, and the old town cemetery, but I digress. You arrive at the museum,... More

I was the last tour of the day so it was a bit rushed. Quite a good tour through history complete with being able to 'have a go' at some of the machines. Not fantastic but certainly I was glad I made the effort to visit. Something different and a good learning experience.

Great and interesting side trip. We found this by accident and are so glad we did. It was so interesting seeing the old machines in action and learning about the history of Amalfi through its paper industry.
