Estonian Museum of Paper

The web site for this Estonian Paper Museum looks intriguing. We ran it through Google’s translator (which did a fairly good job) and came up with the following bits of information. The museum was established recently in the city of Tartu, Estonia’s second largest city. Tartu (among other cities) claims to be the birthplace of paper. We’ll sidestep that debate here because we’re more interested in the museum itself, which appears to be doing some innovative work in highlighting the merits of paper, it’s use in 3-dimensional design, and modern innovations in its manufacture. Paberimuuseum offers a range of classes and exhibitions. If anyone is planning to visit Tartu and stops at the museum, we’d love to get your feedback. Otherwise, you can visit virtually by clicking here.
