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.

It's a great place to visit both for adults and kids. There are games to partecipate too in the garden and on the last floor you can play with actual puppets and marionettes. There is also a little bar in the garden.

This was the most fun I had in Plzen, here with a group of theatre professionals. I love marionettes and enjoy puppets. I think most people would enjoy these displays, videos, moving marionettes, history displays. It was way more than I expected. Very reasonable price...More
