“Wonderful layout improvements”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

We've been going to the Basel Paper Mill Museum (and the Cafe next door) for years. We were in town again this month and visited again (umpteenth time), and really liked the new layout and exhibits!

“Fun for you and family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

If you solo or with kids, it's a cool place to visit, if you have time and have miss those classes on school, it has everything about paper. You can make your own with the Basel symbol and write a letter like the old times with the was stamp, I totally recommend!

“Excellent museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This museum was wonderful! My kids enjoyed learning the history of paper, and even got to make some paper themselves! They loved the museum so much that we have been a few times, and they want to go back!

“A rare gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

This museum is a fabulous little piece of history! The house itself is worth visiting, if you like authentic and beautifully-preserved Swiss architecture. The tour is phenomenal, and a wonderfully interactive for kinesthetic learners like myself! I can't wait to take our children when they are in elementary school.

“Most interesting experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

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.
