Also known as Taiyuan Asian Puppet Museum. We spent a couple hours here on a rainy day in Taipei. There are several floors to explore different types of puppets through the ages. There are several hands-on areas to play with puppets or try them out. Puppet history, puppet theater, lots of interesting things to see and read about at this unique museum. On the way out we got to see a puppet being made by hand - hair being put on and then tried out. Very interesting!

This is a quaint little place full of amazing historical and contemporary puppets, part of the significant Asian puppet culture. On several floors of an historic building just off Dihua Street, this was an amazing hour of discovery, DIY puppet play, and a behind-the-scenes look at the important Taiwan and Asian puppet culture.

My family was on vacation in Taipei and was looking for something different to do on a rainy day. We easily found this museum and were pleasantly surprised. The staff was welcoming and the interactive exhibits were educational and fun. I bought a great little children's book in the gift shop (written in Chinese and English) that told a cute story detailing the history of the building. On some weekends, they offer workshops and shows. Definitely worth a visit.

What a cute place! We enjoyed our visit. The information was also in English and we were able to play with some of the puppets. The videos were also interesting. Seeing the workshop in action was also interesting. We were sad that we couldn't see a puppet show as there aren't any on until July :(
