Museu da Marioneta Lisbon


The Museu da Marioneta, or Puppet Museum, of Lisbon, is a true labor of puppetry love, launched by the puppeteer group Companhia de Marionetas de São Lourenço in 1987.

The permanent collection of the museum includes a lot more than just Portuguese puppetry, but reaches right back to the roots of puppetry in its retelling of the history of the art from stages around the world, particularly Asia.


The museum's collection features masks, puppets, techniques, posters, clothing and stage props – again, with a lot more than just Portuguese puppets, but devoted, of course, to their irresistible magic.


The Museum has special exhibitions, advertised on the Puppetry Museum website (unfortunately not regularly updated in English.)
