The Crane Museum of Papermaking is definitely tucked away in the Crane Paper Co. complex, but it's well worth seeking out. (If you land at the Crane Co. offices first, you can get printed directions to the museum from there.) Charles Wellspeak, the curator, greeted us and suggested we view a couple of videos first. We learned a great deal about the history of the company as well as all the security features of the new $100 bill. Exhibitions about the papermaking process were also informative. There were some wonderful artifacts on display including thank-you notes from Jackie Kennedy and Ethel Kennedy to folks sending them their sympathies on the deaths of JFK and RFK - printed on Crane stationery, of course. The museum is open only during the week, so it's not a weekend destination. In the little shop area, you can buy Crane goods at a discount.
