“Worth a trip up the hill”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

In visiting Amalfi the tour guide spoke of a museum some 20/25 minutes up a hill. We decided to go to the museum prior to having lunch/visiting the cathedral. The good news is that the journey only took about 15 minutes (maximum) and the museum was well worth a visit.

For 4 Euros per person a guide took a group of 5 of around the museum and explained the history of paper making and allowed one of our group to 'start making some paper' using the technique of several centuries ago.

The tour took about 15/20 minutes so in 45 minutes you can make the trip up the hill and visit the museum - this is well worth doing in addition to visiting the cathedral.

“very interesting”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

If you are in Amalfi don't miss it - it's a short and interesting tour which sheds light on the paper industry in general and also a little bit about the history of Amalfi. Interesting both for kids and adults.

“Amalfi paper mill/museum”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

We had a great visit to the paper museum just above the shopping area in the town of Amalfi. It's a little bit of a walk up the hill but well worth it. You get to see the old paper machines actually operate and you can even make paper using the old process from cloth. The staff was very friendly and they offer tours in both Italian and English.

“Now I know better about paper!!”
Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

I really enjoyed the museum. Lino, our guide, was informative and very funny. Half hour of interesting info and few laughs!

I found fascinating the way they use to make paper. No waste and little money!!!

“Paper Museum”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

This was a fun stop while walking through Amalfi. It was interesting to see the old paper maker and we even had a chance to "make our own paper" dipping the screen into the cotton water. Not a full day or even a half a day activity but defiantly a fun stop while it lasted.
