Puppet Museum in Buenos Aires

San Telmo, with its narrow streets, is a neighbourhood that takes the visitor on a journey back in time, but it is also home to the Buenos Aires Puppet Museum. It is a real return to childhood, as the puppeteers remind us that imagination is essential to human beings. More than 500 puppets are on display: dolls, Sicilian puppets, marionettes, etc. The origins are very diverse, from China, India or Japan to Vietnam, Switzerland and of course Argentina. In addition to enjoying the collection, you can enjoy the puppet theatre for adults, clown and musical shows.
