We went by chance and were so glad we did. A fascinating museum of paper making. A real insight in to the history of life in medieval Amalfi. Helpful and informative staff

This museum is a small and perfectly preserved snap-shot of a set of skills and technology that is centuries-old: paper-making. The museum is so personal: the man at the front desk basically closes the ticket office in order to take you round the whole site. It only take 20+ minutes but takes in all the old machinery, the sluices to... More

In an era when so much of the old is being lost to technology, it is wonderful to see this working museum preserving traditional paper making techniques. The process is also very considerate of the environment as it uses water for power snd natural products There is a little shop at the end where you can buy paper products from... More

Small, well organised museum, but can't be visited without guide. Our guide spoke english. Very basic and technical inside. More of interest for people who do not have any knowledge in this type of subject. But, why not to visit; it's always useful to get a bit more of acknowledgement?

If you walk up the main thoroughfare of Amalfi, you’ll gradually find yourself moving higher and higher through town as the street winds its way back towards the hills. The crowds will fade away and eventually you’ll come across this fascinating little museum. You may see what looks like an entry, which will appear to be closed; keep walking up... More

Our tour guide walked our group up the Amalfi main street almost to the end, where there was a paper mill. We took the short tour - it was interesting, and my husband was able to demonstrate stirring the slurry of cotton fibers and using a sieve to create the beginnings of paper. It was a little hard to understand... More

The tour is totally worth the money on this one. They show you how the paper is made with the river water and a demonstration. They also turn on some of the old machinery that uses the river water to run! The amount of history and engineering is incredible. The tour is maybe 30 minutes or so and our guide... More

This is the oldest paper makes mill in Europe. It was opened in 1360 and ran until the 1960's. Most of the old machines still work. The tour was very interesting. If you're in Amalfi it's worth a visit.

The main reason we visited Amalfi was to see this museum and see how beautiful Amalfi paper was made. The tour was fantastic and it was incredible to see the ancient machinery and experience this centuries old craft. Amalfi is historically important for it's ancient paper mills and paper production and the tour at the museum is very interesting. It... More
