Just happened to discover this place with the kids. At first, a paper museum might not seem that enticing, but we all loved it. Very friendly staff, a chance to make paper (which turned out great), and interesting exhibits. A fun coupe hours that we all learned from.
Very interesting, with fun activities for kids. Making your own paper is a real highlight.
