Informative and hands-on, but wash them after!

We did the tour and it was fun and interesting and much more hands-on than I anticipated! It’s the perfect intersection of my interests in design, art and history.

Impressive little museum.

Lovely staff, very interesting tour with hands on experiences. Great for kids and also adults as there is an technical as well as an art section. It's a museum that also hosts artists and students...

A fun and fascinating place to visit.

Probably the most interesting ‘museum’ I have ever visited. We were given a personal tour by Charlotte in English and learnt so much about the history of paper and printing… absolutely fascinating...
