This museum was established by Changchun Paper Co. founder Chen Su-ho. A long-time paper industry insider Chen felt that it was shame that although China invented paper the profile of Chinese paper-making traditions of China had receded in modern times. He therefore began planning the Su Ho Memorial Paper Museum which opened five years later in October 1995. In addition to paper displays the museum has a demonstration handmade paper factory and offers classes on papermaking. Visitors can also pick up a variety of fine handmade paper items at the museum gift shop.
