Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking

500 10th Street Northwest
Atlanta, GA 30332



The mission of the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum is to collect, preserve, increase, and disseminate information about papermaking — past, present, and future.

About us:

The Robert C. Williams Papermaking Museum has reopened!  The history of paper and papermaking is explored in our long-term exhibit.  The Green Gallery focuses on papermaking and the environment, and a space is dedicated to Dard Hunter, the collector of most of the Museum’s collection.

Be sure to visit Breaking New Ground, a retrospective look at the Institute of Paper Science and Technology (IPST) over 84 years.  Beginning with the early days in Appleton, the exhibit provides an account of the history of the organization and highlights some of the many research successes over the years.  The exhibit is an engaging narrative that helps to put faces onto an organization that has had a significant impact on the dynamic pulp and paper industry since 1929.

Step across the lobby to view the Mead Education Center, which showcases machinery from nineteenth-century paper mills.  Use stereoscopes to see pictures of paper mills in action at the turn of the century, and discover how paper is made today.
