The museum presents local history and a very varied collection of little-known objects made of papier-mâché and the ancestors of plastic objects. In the heart of the city, in a refurbished Renaissance hotel, the Au fil du papier museum is the only museum in France to present such a large collection of lacquered cardboard pieces. From the powder magazine to Queen Victoria's drawing room, these objects, presented on two levels, were produced in the city or in Europe in the 19th and until the middle of the 20th century, before being dethroned by the Bakelite. The ground floor presents the history of the town of Pont-à-Mousson, while two other rooms respectively house the history of foundries and Mussipontian imagery A unique collection of papier-mâché objects and furniture (late 19th - early 20th century), including Queen Victoria's salon, an astonishing room to discover, as well as lithographic images (19th century) and books produced in the early 17th century by the University of Lorraine.
