  • Museum crafted with love, which informs about the history of puppet theatre in the world. Especially liked the Austellungsbereich Asian shadow play has given us. The Paul Maar and the Sam's special exhibition is perfectly suitable for children. There's a nice small museum shop and very friendly staff. The Museum is definitely worth a visit!
