The museum of Puppet Theatre
This unique exhibition brings the history of puppet theatre to life. Over 2500 beautifully crafted figures make up the impressive collection, which aims to give visitors an insight into the art of puppetry with groups of puppets, scenery and motifs. It also provides a wealth of information on the artists behind the theatre: the puppet makers, puppeteers and theatre makers.
The exhibition ranges from the travelling theatres of the 19th century to established puppet theatres and the television stars of the German puppet world Robbi, Tobbi, Bernd das Brot and Herr von Bödefeld. Visitors will discover a wealth of genres, characters and material for all ages. Alongside the permanent exhibition, the puppet museum also has a series of temporary exhibitions for which it is now renowned.
Bad Kreuznach has set up a new, modern museum with a theatre and puppet workshop on the 1500 m² former manor of Bangert. Visitors can not only admire the artistic puppet theatre ensemble, they can also experience it live at festivals and regular puppet shows. This art form in its own right has something to offer to every age group: both the depth of the literary material and the design of the puppets, not to mention the virtuosity of the puppetry, hold audiences at the museum of puppet theatre spellbound.
