Museum of Puppetry Arts

A wonderful theatrical world

The museum aims to introduce all aspects of creation and performance in puppet theater. This museum is like a labyrinth that leads you through the world of theatre, and everyone can decide whether to participate or be a spectator instead.

You can travel through the history of Estonian puppet theater art, listen to the life and creative story of the first artistic director of the Estonian Puppet Theater, Ferdinand Veike, and be a stage decorator or an actor yourself.

The permanent exhibition of the Museum of Puppetry Arts takes you back to 1952, when the Estonian Puppet Theater (also known today as the Estonian Theater for Young Audiences) was founded.

The second part of the exhibition introduces different types of puppets. You can play with table puppets, stick puppets, hand puppets, and marionettes.
