  • The Museum is located in the small alley quite hidden, but definitely worth a visit. Many dolls are on several levels. My highlight was my magical friend Sams.

  • A fascinating little Museum, which tells the story of theatre puppets from around the world. At the Museum you can see views of marionettes, sock puppets, shadow puppets and mechanical dolls, which are an integral part of the theater. The admission. Opening hours: November to March Tuesday through Sunday from 11:00-17:00, April to October daily from December 10:00-18:00, two from 11:00-17:00. Some time it is advisable to visit the Museum? An hour or so.
