Museum for Puppetry Arts (PuK)
Discover the world of puppet theatre - from marionette to TV star. Take a journey through 100 years of puppet theatre
This unique exhibition brings the history of the puppet theatre to life. The collection comprises more than 2,500 elaborate figures and is designed to introduce visitors to this art form using puppet sets, theatrical images and motifs. At the same time, visitors discover a lot about the artists behind the scenes – the puppet builder, the puppeteer and the theatre maker.
The exhibition spans the travelling theatres of the 19th century, the permanent puppet stages later on, and concludes with the television puppet stars of today. Walking around the exhibition, the diversity of performance styles, puppet characters and theatrical material for all ages is revealed. In addition to the permanent exhibition, PuK has also made a name for itself with its constantly changing temporary exhibitions.
