I am not familiar with a puppet museum. Is it possible that you are thinking of the Musee de la Poupee? In French, poupee means doll, so it is a doll museum.

I don't know about a museum but there is a puppet theater in the Jardin du Luxembourg. Also on the Ile St. Louis on the main central street there is an absolutely amazing shop that sells incredible marionettes (and maybe puppets). It is several blocks from the bridge on the right side of the street.

I've never heard of a puppet museum in Paris. There is a wellknown one in Lyon, where they are big on puppets.

"poupee"

For a minute, I thought this was another bathroom question.

Christina,
The Musee de la Poupee is located on Impasse Berthaud (next to Rue Rambuteau 22), Paris 3rd arr.
Open Tuesday-Sunday 10 AM to 6 PM. Closed on Mondays.
It may interesting, if you're like in dolls. It has a permanent collection of French dolls and babies from 1860 to 1960 presented in showcases that recreate past games.

I love all those small museums in Paris. They are often less crowded than the big and famous ones.
When I read Pariscope, I am often amazed about the large number of museums worth being discovered.

Rudite, enjoy the Puppet Museum, if you should go.

Actually, I'm not very interested in dolls or puppets, rudite was. I'm a little confused by your post Ursula, are you saying the Musee de la Poupee has some puppets in it?

Christina,
My fault, sorry.
You know that I speak German. Must have mixed up puppets and dolls in that particular case. (
Of course, I do know, puppets are 'marionettes' and not 'poupees'.
I suppose the Musee de la Poupee has just dolls.
Not that interested in both, either.
