Specialty Museum Museum
A delightful curiosity hidden on a side street, Le Petit Musée de Guignol pays tribute to Guignol, one of the world's greatest puppet makers and masters. Your movement within the museum makes displays operational. When a display lights up, choose your language, then it will give you information. Don't miss the basement exhibit of themed puppets. Be sure to ask questions: the staff is known to share entertaining anecdotes for each puppet archetype displayed.
