Just off of 10th Street in Atlanta, Georgia you can find a the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum. It’s located on the lobby floor of the Institute of Paper Science and Technology on Georgia Tech’s campus.

The collection is small, but valuable in explaining the history of paper making and showing great examples of the design process through the ages and within different cultures. The museum features a collection of over 10,000 watermarks, papers, tools, machines, and manuscripts.

If you’d like a tour, it’s easy enough to just walk in during the week. If you have a group of 10 or more, I suggest you call ahead to let them know. Parking is limited and you can ask the front desk if you can park around the back when you have a large group.

The Robert C. Williams Paper Museum is located at:

Institute of Paper Science and Technology
Mail code 0620, Georgia Tech

Enjoy life long learning,
