History on strings.

Housed in the convent of Bernadas in Lisbon, the Museum of Puppets is the only museum in Portugal dedicated to the history of puppetry as well as to the theatre of puppetry and masks.

Of all colours, all shapes and from all countries (with of course a special place reserved for Portuguese puppetry), the puppets and masks that you will discover each have their own history, their use and their manufacturing process.
Come and be charmed by this art which comes to life like magic under your fingers ...
