New! Puppets: A Beautiful Fantasy

Come explore the art of puppetry through storytelling, puppet building, and performance in this new hands-on exhibit. 

Activities in the exhibit will rotate often and include:*

  • Writing a script for a puppet show and developing a cast of characters 

  • Engineering puppets using a variety of tools and techniques

  • Exploring how costumes can tell their own story

  • Performing a show at one of our puppet theaters

  • Exploring a selection of puppets from around the world

*New activities may be introduced to replace these as we prototype new ideas.

Puppets: A Beautiful Fantasy is inspired by puppets from the Children's Museum's Margo Lovelace Collection and the rich puppet history of Pittsburgh and the world.
