What a fun place to visit and learning experience! Highly engaging and learning experience about the paper industry and very interactive with the visitors! Learning, exploring and even creating crafts and making your own paper! Worth the visit!

This museum is fun for the family!! Learn all about paper making and even make some recycled paper of your own. Several crafts for you or your kids to try. The gentleman who helped make the paper was super-he really made it a good time.
