Museum of Papermaking in Duszniki Zdrój.
The most renowned in Poland, the Museum of Papermaking in Duszniki Zdrój, is located in the 17th century paper mill, a unique industrial monument.
The first mention of the paper mill in Duszniki Zdroj and the paper maker AmbrosiusTepper date back to the second half of the 16th century. The surviving mill buildings include the mill built in 1605 which was used for both housing and production. In the 17th century the paper mill was the most valuable in Silesia. It had the monopoly on the supply of paper to offices in Wroclaw. The production of paper was halted in 1937. The last owner of the paper mill donated it to the city as a museum of technology. Nowadays you can see collections of papermaking and printings machines, several machines are visible in the front of the museum building.

This museum is housed in a remarkable building. The design of the facade and the roof, the architectural decorations and the colour are very special and look wonderful.
You took the building from a good angle and provided the picture with a good depth and interesting foreground with the printing machines.
Best regards, Paul

Very neat and clean atmosphere. Well demonstrated machinery of the factory. The buildings are looking too old.

Cześć, Tak mi sie wydawało, że są tam jakieś młyny. Bardzo ładne budynki. Super zdjęcie. Byłam tam chyba w 1968 roku.

What an interesting place!
I like how there are pieces of machinery outside the museum.
They act as tempters to the public but they, also, make great introductory features in your photograph.
A fine viewpoint leads nicely to the attractive museum building, sharply featured.
My warm regards,

this place looks amazing. I love your POV and the DOF is perfect too as we can make out all the detailing of the fg exhibits as well as the beautiful building itself. A stunning and most unusual museum. I like it!

belle le architetture e interessante la tua nota.
Non conosco bene la lavorazione della carta, ma le tecniche sono molto antiche e si sono trasformate molto con i secoli, per cui, avere un museo su questo argomento, puņ essere solo interessante.
