I have German heritage, so I vaguely remember this puppet show from my childhood. The puppet displays are very nice and well maintained and there are some interactive spaces for kids. Most explanations are only in German, so many might not get that much out...More

This puppet museum was adorable! I enjoyed every minute of it. There were very few people there during my visit making it easy to navigate and view all the displays. It is a small museum, but it makes you smile!

Very nice artistic work, all the muppets are hand made and everything is made manually. You can see the original muppets from the tv series, which scenario and everything. Also you can see the show with the muppets in the theater, and it's very funny...More

It s very nice for children - different fairy-tale stories But not only. Adults have fun too. From time to time it will be featured a cabaret show. It s nice to see. But its better, when vistors understand the German language.

We were recommended this as a visit well known to Germans; it was certainly packed (we went on a Sunday). There was also a puppet show in the theatre, but it was sold out before we got there. The puppets on display (hundreds of them)...More

It is a great museum for all of those who watched the Augsburger Puppenkiste as a child. It brings back a lot of memories and is well worth the trp.

This is an amazing display of marionettes - they were staged in glass cases with the historic story they represented. We did not get to see a show, but those are supposed to be excellent.
