Welcome to Papirmuseet (The Paper Museum)
The Paper Museum is Denmark’s specialty museum for paper and papermaking. The Paper Museum is a knowledge center as well as a working museum where the production of handmade paper is brought to life. The Paper Museum is located in the old production halls for handmade paper at Silkeborg Paper Factory. Here, the old trade that once produced the paper for the Danish banknotes is being demonstrated and visitors too are given the opportunity to try their hand at papermaking and to dip a mould. The museum’s little cinema shows a film about paper production, and an exhibition in the old production hall tells about Silkeborg Papirfabrik and Danish paper industry through time. There will also be temporary exhibitions about paper production.
