I've visited the museum a few times before and made a trip last weekend to catch the nutcracker exhibit before it goes back into storage, probably sometime this month. It was well worth the trip. The permanent displays are always fun to see again, too....More

Brought my kids to this museum. It was a great experience. The place has a small but nice play area. Kids are entertaining themselves by playing with the puppets. The museum exhibit area also has a good collection of much bigger and advanced puppets.

It's a small museum with a variety of puppets and a puppet play area for kids. Little kids love it. They have a giant Pinocchio. It's free.
