We booked “cabaret” and were expecting actual topics addressed but it was mainly a row of generic jokes. Dissatisfied we left earlier.

As a girl who loved watching the VHS years back I enjoyed going back and seeing all’s those dolls again. The museum is small and good for just a quick walkthrough.

This puppet museum was adorable! I enjoyed every minute of it. There were very few people there during my visit making it easy to navigate and view all the displays. It is a small museum, but it makes you smile!

Very nice artistic work, all the muppets are hand made and everything is made manually. You can see the original muppets from the tv series, which scenario and everything. Also you can see the show with the muppets in the theater, and it's very funny...More
