This fantastic museum is full of wonderful puppets. Beautiful displays. The videos are great too. Sometimes you can forget that they are puppets.
Well worth an hour or so.

To see the development of Theater puppets during the last three centuries is nice for children and for adults. Entrance is free, but you can buy very nice hand-made puppets here.

If you need a break from the churches, the historic sites and the traditional venues, go to this totally charming and delightful museum of hand made puppets, well worn, well loved, every imaginable classic character from Italian folk tales. A true gem.

We find puppet museums to be highly entertaining and try to visit them wherever we find ourselves. This is a nice little collection in an interesting spot, and it's Free!

We enjoyed our little side trip to see the puppets. Unfortunately there was not tour in English but some written commentaries.

I like marionettes so I enjoyed the visit. but I can understand my wife being not that enthusiastic walking around this kind of pieces of art.

We loved the displayed puppets. There was a small fee for the audio guide but the first few audio guides did not work. Waiting until they found one that did work was worth the wait. It would have been better if there were more videos of the puppets in action but overall a great experience.

You can Gert in with a free ticket and that is the only way to justify the visit. The puppets are interesting but you would need to see a show to appreciate them better.

I was looking for something a little more unconventional to do after seeing countless art galleries during my month in Italy. This fitted the bill perfectly - it was free admission and very unique. A quirky old style puppet museum which made for some interesting reading and viewing, and some arty photos. Not too difficult to find and definitely worth a visit.

You're almost lured into the museum/theater by the music being piped out onto the street. Go through a courtyard to the entrance and you'll find a multitude of puppets inside. You'll also see old timey posters and ads for the puppet shows. Entry is free unless you'd like to see a performance. The museum is quite small so your visit won't take much time. This is a nice little diversion if you're killing time. Maybe 30 mins?
