Paper Discovery center review

The Paper Discovery Center was first conceived in 1999 as part of the Paper Industry International Hall of Fame, Inc. The idea of a Hall of Fame for the paper industry germinated in May 1992 when a group of current and former paper industry executives in Wisconsin’s Fox River Valley met to discuss how the importance of paper, and particularly some of the giants of the industry, could be recognized. They especially felt that the industry deserved recognition as the cornerstone of the Valley’s economy, and that of the world as well. In 1999, the Paper Industry International Hall of Fame, Inc. was offered Kimberly-Clark Corporation’s former Atlas Mill in Appleton, Wisconsin, USA, to serve as its home. Its size also provided the opportunity to adequately tell the story of paper, for this reason the Paper Discovery Center opened in 2005.

The Paper Discovery Center is a museum and workshop center focused on the papermaking overlooking the Fox River, where paper is an important local industry. The museum narrates the history of the productive process of pulp and paper manufacturing, showing the processes through accurate scale model of the machines involved in the paper converting industry. The museum programs’ include also hands-on work experience, where visitors of all ages can create a colorful sheet of paper.

Furthermore, the Paper Discovery Center offers different educational opportunities for:
School classes – a field trip that integrates science, art, and history with an inspiring and relevant industry example that is strongly connected to Wisconsin’s heritage.
Scouts - a wide range of programs tailored specifically for participating Girl Scout, Boy Scout, Cub Scout groups. The Scout programs offer unique and personalized opportunities for children to discover the world of paper through hands-on scientific activities, while meeting their scout program goals as well.
Public programs for adults and children – ideal for a family or a team day out discovering the history of papermaking and hands-on activities.
