Fodor's Review

In a renovated church in the Maple Leaf neighborhood, the only puppet center in the Northwest highlights the renowned marionettes of the Carter family, professional puppeteers trained by masters from Italy, Romania, and China. For their talents they have received a Fulbright Award and a UNIMA/USA Citation of Excellence, the highest award in American puppet theater. New museum exhibits are curated about every six months and may focus on a particular tradition, technique,

or historic period. Past exhibits have included "Puppetry from Around the World" and "Cheering up the Great Depression: Puppetry & the WPA." Performances are open to the public on weekends. Recent shows include Rapunzel, Puss in Boots, and Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp. The museum is open before and after shows, or by appointment.
