The puppets are a tradition in Czechia. The Loutek Puppet Museum is an enchanted place for children and also for adults. You can touch and play with many of the dolls and you can even prepare your own show. It is increbible! It is a must in Plzen!

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.

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.

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.

We visited the museum with our children in age 2 and 5. I didn't expect much, the more I have been surprised. The museum has a big collection of puppets since history till present.
I really enjoyed the time there, even I am not a fan of puppets. Very nice is a room in the third floor where you can play with various kinds of puppets. For kids is interesting to watch automatic puppet show, which is short, but nice.
I am really glad we have been there and can recommend to others.

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 and very nice staff.

My husband is a big fan of marionettes and puppets. He was born in Germany and a lot of the children's shows he grew up with were actually Czech puppet productions; who knew? I didn't until we were in Plzen and saw a brochure for this museum. Of course we had to go and he was top of the trees about it, and while I do not personally think of myself as a puppet fan (my only experience with them growing up was that one scene in The Sound of Music and I actually tend to think they're kind of creepy) I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. There's a long history of Czech puppetry and the museum has an amazing collection of artifacts. They also have a big room where you can play with different kinds of puppets, including some giant life-size ones! It was really interesting and a lot of fun.

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!

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.

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.
