An easy walk from Toscolano town through a forest to the museum. Informative and interesting although the teens tound it a little dry. Information throughout available in English. Nice little cafe to have a sit in the sun afterwards. A small road teain is also available from Maderno for €3 euro to the museum but it only runs occasionally. You can also drive to the museum carpark and it is only a short walk from there.

Slightly off the beaten path, I would recommend catching the small train-like shuttle (the small shuttle has multiple cars and all are shaped like a train) that will take you up in the valley. From here, you'll be able to walk the area, hiking up into the valley along side a small stream with distant mountain peaks visible all of the time. The history was interesting but the hiking (suitable for 18mos old - 80yrs old) in the out doors was really great. This was one of our best days and I would recommend for any group.

Who knew this great museum is 'hiding' near Lake Garda! What a wonderful experience, driving up with a car and then walking around 500 meters to the museum in this green, beautiful scenery. Nice little bar, great for ice cream or cafe :) , together with a nice gift shop. Very interesting museum to visit. Highly recommended!

We were told we could get a 'land train' up to the museum but when we got off the ferry from Torri del Benaco we couldn't see one. In the end, we walked. It is only a couple of kilometres from the harbour. It was an easy walk, heading north from the harbour along the main road. In under a kilometre, there are two roads coming down from the left. Cross the river and take the road immediately on the left. Keep to the river bank and in about 20 minutes, you are there. The valley is lovely, a cool shady walk on a hot day with the gurgling of the river below as and it is lined with boards describing the history of the industry in the valley and it's current status as a site of ecological interest and it's place in the hydroelectric grid. The museum was wonderful, very informative and well laid out with plenty of exhibits and descriptions in English as well as Italian and German. This area is one of the most important historical sites for paper making and although this is the only mill left, it is easy to imagine the noise and industry that went on here over the centuries. There is a video which follows the old process of papermaking and it is clearly made by some of the people who used to work here before the mill closed in the 60's. There is also a newer plant which is also very interesting. (TIP: The loos in the new paper mill are better than the one by the shop) After the museum, we fancied a drink and so we went to the cafe which is alongside the river. It was very nice, very reasonably priced and the beer and panini we have were very good. We then walked back to Maderno and caught the ferry back across the lake. All in all a very enjoyable day out.

As a graphic designer I've always had an interest in paper but wondered how interesting a museum could be and the answer is - very. The museum is well laid out has has a lot of information at hand. We caught a little tourist 'Land train' right outside our hotel in Moderno which takes you up a little picturesque valley track and comes back to pick up in about an hour. We had time to visit the museum and have a drink in their cafe before returning.
