Puppet Museum

The Puppet Museum in Pilsen profits on the rich local puppet-playing tradition. It maps the activities of the puppet theatres performing in Pilsen and its nearest vicinity. The exposition presents step by step the beginnings of puppetry in Pilsen from the strolling puppeteers over the Puppet Theatre of Holiday Settlements, Skupa’s Theatre, and production of puppeteers’ companies of the second half of the 20th century up to the present days.
