Owner description: The Museum of Theatre Puppets will be closed for two years while the buildings will be renovated. The buildings, some of which date to the 16th century need to be restored, and the 35 year old exhibition will be updated. The work is scheduled to begin in January 2018. The Puppet Theater Museum was established in 1982 by collector Fritz Fey and preserves a unique collection dealing with the theme of Puppet Theater. Belonging in its inventory are a variety of puppets, props, theater scenery, and placards, as well as musical instruments from the continents of Asia, Africa, and Europe. A collection acquisition conducted in 2010 on behalf of the Possehl Stiftung documented more than 30,000 exhibits. Some objects are up to 300 years old. The collection of Lubeck’s Puppet Theater Museum is internationally known in expert circles. The Museum finds itself adjacent to Lubeck’s Puppet Theater where modern pieces are staged for children and adults.

Do not just visit the museum, but instead visit any of the performances - ANY! It is a fall back in time - even into childhood! Very charming!

In a country where puppet shows are part of its culture this is a great collection of puppets from both Germany and around the world.

If it is raining head here.

Fascinating display of puppets from around the world. Should not be missed.
Not just a way of passing the time on a rainy day. Look out for the puppets, which are intended to be caricatures of an Englishman and a Scotsman.

We visiting this Puppet Theater. It was very interesting to see how puppets started and the making of them. It was not very interesting for the kids as they were past the ages to see these museums. It was small, tight, and boring.

One doesn't have to be a child or even theater enthusiast to enjoy this. It's a pretty rare type of place.
