Marionette Museum Cesky Krumlov

The historical building of the former St. Jobst Church, Latrán No. 6, houses an exhibition of both old and current marionettes, complete puppet theatres, including stage designs and curtains. One of the most extraordinary exhibits on display is a complete Baroque theatre with functional Baroque machinery, stage designs and properties. The overall impression from the exhibition is magnified by the museum’s gorgeous interiors – the open arched roof where the exhibition is installed. The exhibition area also includes two galleries – a sales gallery offering decorative puppets made by Czech authors and a unique selection of the original historical marionettes. The museum also houses a theatre with all the necessary technical facilities.
