The museum

At the factory you will find a museum filled with old memories from the days when the factory was at its height.
At the museum you can follow the history through the years and sense the alternating happy and rough times for the people who worked there.
Furthermore, you can see old machines no longer in use and stationary from the times when an arithmetic book was about arithmetic. During the war, the factory was used for producing ration books as well as cardboard, which was embossed in such a way that it resembled leather.
You are able to see and follow the history of the family who built and founded the factory.
At the factory there is also a class-room which is used during the guided tours to show films about the factory and its history.
