Occasional prints, stationery and souvenirs confirming the traditions of this region are prepared on the sheets produced in Duszniki Zdrój. But the most important thing for visitors to Duszniki is that in the mill you can create your own sheet at regularly available workshops. Tourists have a chance to visit the building and try their hand at the traditional drawing of paper, and various temporary thematic exhibitions will be additional attractions.


The long history of the Duszniki mill will attract many visitors. When visiting this place, we will find out that the greatest industrial boom in this place occurred in the 17th and 18th centuries. It was then that it was expanded and modernized. The aesthetic values ​​were also taken care of – you can admire unique wall polychromes.


Thanks to the efforts of the museum staff and the care of the local government of the Duszniki region, the paper mill is appreciated today by numerous guests, experts and conservationists. By the decision of the President of the Republic of Poland in 2011, the Mill in Duszniki was entered on the list of Polish historical monuments. Efforts are currently underway to enter the site on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
