“All kinds of puppets in the cIty of culture for kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2011

The city Holon is famous for its investment in cultural establishments for children. The more famous attractions are the Yamit 2000 water park and the adjacent Children's museum. Visitors looking for a free day out will also enjoy the fabulous Gan Sippur (story park) - this is a theme park divided into landscaped sections, each of which tells one of Israels' children's favorite bedtime stories, with imaginative and artistic sculptures incorporating children's playground games. Following the culture theme for children, the Puppet Museum is not to be missed - and it's free!!. The museum exhibits all kinds of puppets, both Israeli and international, activity corners and mini film shows. Here you'll find soft muppet-like puppets, lovingly chiseled wooden antique-style puppets, carnival masks and more... There's also a puppet theatre school, a 160-seat puppet theatre, and a library and archive. Organised groups (from age nursery school and upwards) can enjoy guided tours and puppet- and mask-making workshops (advanced booking with entrance fee required). Visitors are welcome to the museum with no advance booking (and entrance is free) on Wednesday afternoons from 16:00-19:00. There's wheelchair access - but baby strollers must be left outside. No food or drinks inside the musum! There's a little supermarket (makolet) across the road for stocking up on food and drink after your visit.
