Within the Ljubljana Castle, this museum is unique. It is a well done museum and very interesting. Displaying a history of marionettes, it is an interactive museum. Unknown to us were the marionette performances done for adults. When visiting the castle, do pay a visit...More

This puppetry museum is in the Castle in Ljubljana. Many interesting things on puppetry if you are into it. Children are like to enjoy the visit. There is also a store that sells puppets.
