Robert C. Williams Paper Museum

The Paper Museum (officially The Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking), located within the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, celebrates the art, science, and history of paper and its pivotal role in the evolution of communication. Established in 1939, it originally showcased the Dard Hunter Collection of artifacts, but has since expanded to include over 10,000 watermarks, papers, tools, machines, and manuscripts that trace the global history of papermaking.

Visitors will have the chance to see one of the largest collections of paper and watermarks in the world, rare books and manuscripts, and the chance to make paper by hand. This simple material shaped civilization, but the pages of history are ever-turning: how will the digital age impact the future of this ancient art? The answer awaits you… and its not written in stone!
