Temporary and Permanent Exhibitions

Temporary exhibition



History, present, future of consumption

The exhibition takes a look at the development of consumption from pre-industrialtimes to the present and raises questions about the future. Visitors are invited to question their own consumption behaviour: Does living today mean consuming? What can I learn from the people of 200 years ago?

From 18.6.2023


Permanent exhibition

From paper mill to factory, from luxury item to throw-away material.

In the permanent exhibition visitors learn how paper was arduously made by hand in the past. They experience the mill wheel powering the rumbling rag beaters and make a sheet of paper from the vat for themselves. They can follow how a strip of paper is made mechanically on a small paper machine.
