The Paper Discovery Center is an educational opportunity with plenty of child-friendly hands-on activities. Learn about the paper products we use and how paper is made. There is a large climb-on play center in the middle of the museum which teaches kids the steps to papermaking. The kids' favorite part of the museum was the paper making area where they got to learn to make their own piece of paper. Free parking on-site.
A fun idea for the paper you make: my kids didn't want to ruin the piece of paper they made so we printed a photo of them making the paper, attached it to the paper, then framed it. Now they have a keepsake of their visit to the Paper Discovery Center.
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS- Hands-on activities were fun for all ages. Informative and interesting. This really made us think more about the paper products we use everyday.
