This place left one of my best memories from Plzeň! The exhibition was great and the most amazing thing - on the last floor you can enjoy some puppets on your own!? Amazing place and I highly recommend it, especially for families with small kids!

Puppets!
Jan 2020
My travel companions are not in agreement, but I loved this place. There are so may interesting and exotic marionettes. There is a brief demonstration of the puppets, and they actually let you play with them on the top floor, so you can find out for yourself how hard they are to maneuver smoothly.I have a feeling that won't last forever, so go now! We were there in January, and we were the only ones in the museum.

Fun museum
Jan 2020
Pilsen is recognized for its great beer, but puppets are also a tradition in here. In the museum, you can learn about this tradition in a fun way. It is impressive how 100-year-old puppets are so well preserved in there. You can even see some of them get animated by a machine. A friendly lady was there showing the puppets with a lot of enthusiasm. In the end, you can get to try yourself the art of bringing a puppet to live!

Rich puppet tradition in Pilsen
Nov 2019
It is a small and a quite new museum (it was opened ten years ago). It is located in Republic Square. The exposition shows the rich puppet tradition in Pilsen. You can see there for example nomadic theatres or lovely home puppet theatres. Some of the puppets are really huge. The museum is interactive, so there are prepared a lot of activities for kids.

Entrance fee is 60,-CZK per adult and takeing pictures is allowed.

Amazing experience
Oct 2018
The Puppet Museum in Pilsen benefits from the local rich puppet theater tradition and maps the activity of puppet theaters playing in Pilsen and its immediate surroundings. The exhibition gradually presents the beginnings of puppetry in Pilsen.

A treat for your your inner child
Apr 2019 • Couples
We were a bit hesitant about going to this museum. Given the good reviews, we decided to visit it, and we are glad we did. We spent over an hour there. The museum is fairly interactive, and there is a final little surprise. My inner child was very pleased :-)
We wished the Pilsner theatre would run shows in foreign languages for visitors to watch, as puppet shows are a cultural tradition that is now lost in many countries.

What a fantastic museum. Well worth a visit, even if you think puppets are not for you. The exhibition is well set out, with good explanations in English, but most of all it is great fun and doesn't take itself too seriously. There is clearly a rich tradition of puppetry in Czech history and it makes Punch and Judy look like a sideshow (oh, sorry.. it is meant to be a sideshow). The puppets are very large, fantastically detailed and beautifully made. This is clearly a major art form.
Great value and an excellent attraction for young and old.

Unique experience
May 2018 • Family
Very well located in the main square, near S Bartholomeo Cathedral, the museum tells the history of the tradition of puppets in the country. There are several exhibitions and interactive attractions that are enjoyable for adults and children. There is a very organized place that can be visited relatively quick. Very recommended if you plan to pass by Pilsen.

Such a Cool Place!!!
Jul 2017 • Friends
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! There was a lady on each floor to show you around and answer questions – very helpful! You will need more than an hour here – depending on how in depth you want to see the place.

Unique and beautiful museum
Aug 2017 • Family
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.
