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)...More

It is a great museum for all of those who watched the Augsburger Puppenkiste as a child. It brings back a lot of memories and is well worth the trp.

This is an amazing display of marionettes - they were staged in glass cases with the historic story they represented. We did not get to see a show, but those are supposed to be excellent.

This place is a genuine museum of interesting exhibits and fun revolving around puppets and marionettes. The puppet shows were completely booked but we were not disappointed by the museum and charm of the place. If possible, get tickets to the show in advance.

These marionettes are perhaps a bit cult like to German Speakers. Many German speaking children grew up with the characters (something like 'Bavarian' Muppets)....However, If you don't speak German or enjoy marionettes this probably isn't worth your time--as the cultural significance will likely be lost...More

The museum is well done and offers enough attractions for several hours. For fans of the famous characters made popular by German TV it is a absolut must, showing the original puppets of the heroes and many sets. For smaller children there are special activities....More

I was a little disappointed in this Museum. But only because of my own expectations (think Disney). It was interesting to see, but if I had know a little more about it, I probably wouldn't have taken the time out of our short stay to...More
