Though not great,a good time pass after sunset,a good enjoyment for children.every act is performed by only one puppet.
As entry is throuugh ticket,they keep asking for donations to artists throughout the show it was irritating.

Puppet shows are at 6.30 pm and 7.30 pm. Surrounding the hall where puppet show is conducted there is museum. You will get to read information about various places in brief. I saw that people overlook the information written there.

A lovely, unique and authentic experience in Jaisalmer. Mr N.K Sharma is so knowledgeable & passionate about the culture surrounding this beautiful city. We went to the lake for sunset then caught the puppet show at 7.30 followed by a walk through the museum. Stunning puppets, beautiful music & friendly people. Highly recommend as a must do in Jaisalmer.

It’s worth a visit. Mr Hemant Sharma, son of Mr NK sharma (responsible for building the museum), provided us with useful local insight regarding the city which made our trip more pleasant. Wonderful display of art through the musical puppet show. The museum is for those interested in the art and culture of Jaisalmer.

This part of our short jaisalmer trip was the most memorable one... The puppet show took us straight to the heart of Rajasthan! The skill of the performers, especially the super talented youth, the mesmerizing songs sung by these talented people and the sheer joy they experienced while performing, shone through each verse... This enclosure of art and culture immortalized by Mr. Sharma will let you experience Rajasthan as it should. My heart is so full❤️ A must visit if you are in Jaisalmer! A small mirage of the bygone world...

The museum is a great little gem in Jaisalmer and the puppet show was really cute. (I really enjoy puppet shows) A great glimpse into the area's culture and it's inspiring that it was a labor of love started by one man to maintain a record of the desert's culture

What an amazing place!
The artists are very committed to the puppet show and to the music and songs.
The museum is most interesting, with beautiful music instruments and daylife objects used in the Thar desert.
The owners speak perfect English and French.
We will defnitely come back!

One of the most memorable experience of mine in Rajasthan. The singers sang so beautifully expressing the real spirit of the state and watching the Kathputli dance to their tunes was just amazing. Also I bought a very nice Kathputli doll for myself from there. There is a wide variety of Kathputli sold. In this virtual world, watching someone perform live and that too preserving the actual heritage and culture is a bliss. Hence, this is a must visit place!

Great place to understand Rajasthani culture. The owner, a teacher, can give you all the information about the museum in English. In the evening there are two puppet shows, the musicians are great and you can also buy a puppet from them. We really enjoyed the show. Give them support 🙏

One artist handled all the puppets and made sounds for them and the other sang and drummed. The puppets seem to be hand painted, the singing and drumming were beautiful, and the puppet design and manipulation were very clever. It was pretty neat!
