Puppets: The Power of Wonder is a hands-on museum displaying more than 350 puppets from various time periods and countries around the world. This collection provides an exploration of puppetry as an international, ancient and popular art form.

Passports Gallery: Wild, Wooly and Wonderful showcases domestic and wild animal puppets alike. For each animal represented in the exhibit, patrons are able to view examples from different cultures side by side to see at the unique artistry, commonalities and differences.

Títere, Loutka, Kukla… Puppet! explores puppets from different cultures. The word puppet holds the same meaning in every language: an inanimate (non-living) object that is brought to life through an outside force whose primary purpose is to convey information to the audience through performance. While individual stories vary, different cultures often share the same basic components of storytelling such as themes and character types.
