Museo Origami


Zaragoza's museum devoted to the art of folding paper has six galleries of exhibits of a staggeringly high standard. Even if you're not very familiar with origami, you will be amazed by what you see.

You can also take hour-long origami classes (€6); check the website for more information and to learn about Zaragoza's fascinating historical connection with origami (dating back to the 1940s).
