The Museum of Papermaking is located in the seventeenth-century paper mill,
a unique monument of art. It is situated on the Bystrzyca Dusznicka River, on
the southern outskirts of the city, at the international road running towards
the border with the Czech Republic. Buildings of the preserved mill create a
complex of adjacent architectural structures that were built in different
periods of time. The most important building of the mill, which used to have
residential and production functions, was built in 1605.
The leading topic of permanent exhibitions in the museum is the history of the paper. A complement of the main topics of the exhibition are exhibits closely related to the history of papermaking, e.g. writing materials prior to the invention of paper, printing techniques and paper products. In the basement, there is a place, where you can see a demonstration of paper production craftwork. It is one of the biggest attractions of the Museum in Duszniki. Covered with polychrome, the rooms of the first floor are made available to visitors during temporary exhibitions. In a pavilion in the courtyard of the Museum an exhibition on the history of printing is presented.
