Vallis Clausa Museum

Vallis Clausa in Fontaine de Vaucluse is the reconstitution of a manually operated paper-making mill using ancestral techniques that go back to the 15th century. The museum brings back to life the region's paper-making past. 

Come discover the wheel in movement, the shafts for the cams, the pulp hammers... and learn everything about the operation of a mill and how it makes paper. 

Vallis Clausa also brings together some twenty craftspeople who work with leather and glass, paint silk, porcelain and glass, sculpt, create wooden toys and make regional products.  

The museum tour is free.
