Kids and Paper Money Around the World. Featuring currency from 10 countries, you’ll learn about who’s on each bill and why they’re immortalized, how to make watermarks for money, and the history of Spirit money.
While you’re there, check out the opening presentation in the new George W. Mead Paper Education Center. “From Hand to Machine: The Evolution of Papermaking” showcases artifacts dating from the 1300s to today, including paper made in space aboard the space shuttle Columbia.
The Robert C. Williams Paper Museum is located at the Institute of Paper Science and Technology at Georgia Tech, 500 10th Street NW, Atlanta. Admission is free, though donations are much appreciated.
