Located in Puppets: The Power of Wonder Permanent Exhibit
Puppets function as windows to the world, allowing one to better understand other cultures through our shared appreciation for the art of puppetry, both in performance and as objects of beauty. This gallery’s premiere exhibition highlights recently acquired puppets from Vietnam, Iran, Cambodia, Egypt, Italy, and the United States along with a hands-on learning center.
