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!

The "Kiste" is a small museum for the famous Augsburger Puppenkiste, a marionette theatre that is very well known in Germany from many TV shows. The museum shows the puppets, arranged in scenes from their various shows, from the first ones to the latest shows, from individual puppets to large scenes, all lovingly arranged. In addition, they offer special themes (it was "Circus" when I was there), with not only puppets to illustrate the theme, but also a few games for visitors. There are also a couple of TVs showing special episodes of the shows.
Cafeteria available.

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 and interesting, specially if you understand German. In the show interval you can visit the backstage and see the "actors" muppets that make the show :)

It s very nice for children - different fairy-tale stories
But not only. Adults have fun too.
From time to time it will be featured a cabaret show.
It s nice to see.
But its better, when vistors understand the German language.

We were recommended this as a visit well known to Germans; it was certainly packed (we went on a Sunday). There was also a puppet show in the theatre, but it was sold out before we got there.
The puppets on display (hundreds of them) obviously meant more to the Germans visiting, but we still found it entertaining.
Certainly different!
