My daughter and I had a good time at the museum making creative paper from plant pulp. It was raining heavily then so it was a fun indoor activity.
There was a school group there at that time so we had a free guided tour on a commercial paper making process. We got a “certificate” at the end of the workshop.
The exhibits at the museum were insufficient though. I wish there were more exhibits to showcase the history of paper making and the development of the paper industry.

This museum was an unexpected find (long story) but it turned out to be 5 minute's walk from my hotel and I didn't want to miss out not visiting it.

Do keep your eyes peeled for a big green banner on Chang-an East Road as it otherwise looks like a gift shop from the street. It's a small museum arranged over 3 floors and a covered rooftop terrace where the paper-making workshops are held. The ground floor is a gift shop and demo area, the second floor an exhibition area, and the third floor has more details about different paper-types which is geared at adults and accessible for children.

The museum opens at 9:30am and shuts early at 4:30pm. The morning paper-making sessions are on-the-hour at 10am and 11am. The sessions are not long, but definitely worth a go as it's also a good chance to have a chat with the friendly staff.

Photography is only allowed on the second floor and the roof terrace: the building spaces are surprisingly photogenic, so I think photographers would also find the museum interesting (although for different reasons).

I spent just over an hour here, with the third floor displays absorbing most of my time.

Brought my 2 children to Suho paper museum. My 5 yo has always been interested in paper recycling. This museum allows him to see how paper is being made. I also signed the kids up for a paper-making workshop ($180), while me and my hubby went in for $100 each. No price difference between adults and kids. There is also a level that provides a couple of hands on experiment stations to allow children to experience the different qualities of paper. Like water absorbency and strength, etc. it’s not a huge museum, but it is educational it can occupy the children for about 2 hours. The children get a piece of their handmade paper and a certificate when we leave.

Suho Memorial Paper Museum is a lovely boutique museum, which serves as a great destination for a relaxing afternoon trip. The exhibition is not huge, but it provides a solid overview of the history of paper making, especially in Taiwan. There are good English translations. The great variety of hands-on activities and exhibits which you can touch make it a great place to visit for families, but I enjoyed it immensely myself as a solo traveler. I highly recommend joining the DIY activity - the facilitator was very approachable and her enthusiasm for paper making was palpable. While very close from the Songjiang Nanjing MRT station (Exit 4), I found the museum a little difficult to find. It would be great if the owners could be install some signs on the way.

I don't usually rate an attraction so poorly unless it's really not up to par. I would only recommend a visit to this tiny museum if you have absolutely nothing to do, maybe on a rainy day and only if you have young kids. With Taipei offering so many other options, this museum turned out to be a disappointment as there was nothing much on display, it was extremely tiny and I wouldn't even personally call it a museum. More like a converted shop that displays a little bit about paper history and making. Our family of 5 even participated in the paper making workshop but honestly, unless you're a child of 10 or under, you're not going to find this very fascinating either. We went because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor but found it a total waste of our time where we could have opted for something better to do.
