Better than I had imagined, it consists of 2 rooms, one room having one of the 3 remain original Gutenberg presses (still works!) and many non-expensive artworks printed on the press and made with handmade paper. The paper is made with there and you can see it made. More interesting than I first thought. A visit takes only 10-15 minutes. Free.

I loved this because I've never been to a paper museum. I found the tour to be very brief, but I walked out with a perfect understanding of medieval paper making and printing processes. I liked that because there was no entry fee, I could instead spend my money buying an original handmade paper print. Because this is so quick an also free, I think it definitely warrants a stop on your Ohrid tour!

Very small house where an older friendly gentleman showed us how they make the paper in the Old Chinese way from the 2nd century BC. A very interesting process that I’ve never seen before. He has some really nice items for purchase such as portraits that can be framed. Definitely a lost art to see before it dies.

This is an interesting place to visit and the lady that works there was very friendly and only to happy to explain and show us how the paper is made. They had some nice pictures that are made on the paper that you can buy. I recommend you pop in and have a look.

The owner is quite friendly and he showed us how to make a sheet of paper, then used the ancient printer. But there's no escaping that this is essentially a shop. How this rates as a top attraction beats me, when there are several beautiful churches, further from the centre, that don't even make it to TripAdvisor.

I was walking towards the Saint Sophia Church when I stumbled upon this small shop. The Owner demonstrated how he makes paper using the old method. He also showed me how he does the printing of some papers.

To remember my visit, I bought one of his hand-printed paper print for 3 Euros. Took some pictures before leaving.

It's really interesting to see how paper is made. The lady at this musuem will go out of her way (you have to ask her) to demo how paper is made from water, cotton and oak tree from the beginning till the end. There are only 7 places like this in the world. Make sure to visit this place. It's like a hidden gem and we noticed tourists walking by missing the place.

A small but interesting workshop. For someone who has not seen how to make handmade paper that is a great place. I used to do such a paper myself, so it was not new to me, but I appreciate the fact that someone is cultivating tradition and showing how it used to be. While walking around the old town in Ohrid, it is definitely worth going there. Some people think that this is a "commercial" place. If so, this is a "commercial" place with style!
