The History of Paper
The fundamental element of banknote production is making paper. In the Red Warehouse, you can follow the steps of the work that created money out of rags. From fibre material to paper pulp. From pulp to paper. Find out what is and what is not paper. Learn about forms of paper and the technology behind our oldest security feature, the watermark. Here in the Red Warehouse, we also have hand papermaking demonstrations, where you are given the opportunity to make your own paper.
The exhibition in the Red Warehouse is located on the ground floor and is accessible for both prams and wheelchairs. There is a toilet, which is accessible and has a changing table.
