Robert C. Williams Paper Museum

Located in the Institute of Paper Science and Technology at Georgia Tech, the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum boasts a collection of over 10,000 paper-related items, from ancient documents printed on papyrus to the machinery that brought pulp science into the industrial age. The Museum also houses the personal collection of Dard Hunter, a noted paper historian and luminary of the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th Century.

While the world’s largest collection of antique papers, tools, watermarks, and artifacts has helped cement the museum’s national and global reputation, it’s the hands-on activities that are a hit with the locals. The museum regularly offers workshops in paper making, from paper jewelry and lamps, to the ancient craft of Japanese Washi.
