All what you wanted to know about paper-making and book-printing.
Staff is really knowledgeable and customer-friendly.
In a very nice corner of the old town, away from the busy main tourist areas, really worth a detour - also with your children.

Very informative on many levels--simple to sophisticated. A super family stop and a picturesque location right on the Rhine. Not too far from the Munster.

The highlight of my trip to Basel last weekend was the Paper Museum, with its history of alphabets, writing, making paper and printing. The building itself (500+ years) is wonderful, and with all these machines lying around, and all the displays, and all the intelligently laid out information, that would be enough. But, it is also very interactive. I made paper, I melted wax. It's really pretty wonderful.

The sound of the water mill drew us to this excellent museum. The paper making and history of writing and type-setting was very well displayed and explained. What a wonderful place - thank you!!!

Housed in the old paper mill, this museum gives you the entire history of paper making and writing with a few interactive activities that will interest children. You can learn to write with a feather pen, stamp papers, and make your own paper.
