Build-a-Puppet Classes at the museum!
Yeah, Yeah, we know. The typical build-a-puppet class features paper bag puppets with glued-on decorations. Perfect to use as a litter bag in the car on the way home from the class. Well, not here at the museum. We help our students make puppets that they will take home, display proudly, and actually use. Even big people have fun in our classes.

Our new exhibit reveals the secrets of puppet history from its beginnings in Ancient Egypt through Greek & Roman times, then circling the globe to Asia and the Far East.

Both fun and educational, this exhibit will take you back, back, back to caveman days when the firelight created shadows on cave walls of performer’s hands retelling the hunting exploits of tribe members while their pet dragon lay snoring outside the entrance.
(Well...maybe not THAT far back).

Let’s skip ahead to a toy marionette in the Egyptian Museum, which dates from the middle kingdom (about 2000 BCE). Drawings of mechanical puppets from ancient Greece, metal Roman puppets in full battle dress, and shadow and rod puppets from Asia unchanged for untold generations.

Come on in and check it out!
