Follow us to stay informed:


The collection includes puppets from the 18th to the 21st centuries located in permanent exhibition rooms.

Unique pieces can be found like a 1810 Laurent Mourguet puppet, puppets from the Thang Long Water Puppet Theater in Hanoi. Vietnam, Chinese shadows from the late 1800s, puppets from the Museo internazionale delle marionette Antonio Pasqualino in Palermo, UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage, among others.
These puppets tell us their own anecdotes showing the life and customs of their countries or their manipulators and builders.
One of the museum innovations is the treatment of the exhibited content. The puppets are grouped by modalities or techniques. This allows us to enjoy and compare the different forms, names, manipulations and characters of each puppetry technique, showing us how they change according to the country and culture where they originate.
Through this simile we can understand part of the story of the countries, territories or people who designed them.
