The Museo del Origami is a small-format museum located in Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay. It opened in January 2020 and except for the months that it was closed due to the pandemic, the museum remained open and has already received more than 12,000 visitors from all over the world. I have the privilege of being at the front desk six days a week attending visitors to the museum and customers to the attached gift shop, and the experience has been rich and entertaining. In this lecture, I am going to tell you about the type of visitors that usually come to the museum, the questions they pose (some really funny or amazing) and the strategy that I use to make sure that every one will leave the museum knowing at least the most basic concepts about paperfolding… a task that is not as easy as it seems to be, especially when people visit museums “through the lens of a cellphone”.
