National Puppet Museum

Museo Nacional del Títere

The national puppetry museum also displays puppets from Germany, Spain, France, Italy, and beyond, including India, Pakistan, and Indonesia.

This puppetry museum should be your first stop. Thanks to the dedication of the Rosete Aranda brothers, who brought puppets and stories to life starting in 1835, visitors can enjoy this enormous collection of more than 450 pieces. Moreover, it continues to grow as it receives donations from around the world. The museum also explains all the ways the puppets are operated: with strings, gloves, hands, and rods. Each puppet has its own story, and if you pay attention, you’ll catch it.
