NUKU theatre & museum is the country’s only professional puppet centre. The theatre aims to offer high quality and diverse visual theatre and puppetry to all ages. The museum's main exhibition starts from the very beginning. You can touch air and see what puppetry does to water, fire and earth - the main elements of everything we see. Then, you can visit the Marionette Room, Rod and Glove Puppet Room, Table Puppet Room and Body Puppet Room. What are their stories, how each puppet is moved and how different puppets really are? These are the questions you will find answers to - and of course, you can try them out on your own, too! Alongside theatre puppets we also have mechanical puppets and The Wardrobe of an Actor where you can try on many costumes and wigs... The exhibition also introduces many theatre positions and jobs such as the Artistic Director, Prop Maker, Puppeteer, Stage Hand and Manager, Make-Up Artist, Costume Maker and so on. The building also has a small cafe.
