This puppet museum looked really cool. Once inside, it was really magical. $3 (60czk). There are 3 floors of the history of marionettes and the people who promoted the puppet theatre. There was an interactive room to play with the marionettes, which was so fun!...More

Very unique and definitely worth the visit. My son loved it. It is very well made and interactive. Also the play activities at the cafe are great and gives you the time to have a quiet coffee while children playing.

Museum is sited in the centrum of Pilsen, a beautiful city with an old history. Puppets museum is not so big, but introduce in the history of medieval theatre. After seeing a lot of pupets and dols you have opportunity to play with them. Recommend!
