EXHIBITION: The Puppet Theatre Fun House 

A unique interactive exhibition of puppets, sets, costumes, props and theatre curios borrowed from the Žilina Puppet Theatre, Bratislava Puppet Theatre, Old Theatre of Karol Spišák in Nitra, Puppet Theatre in Košice, Puppet Theatre at the Crossroads in Banská Bystrica and the Museum of Puppet Culture and Toys at Modrý Kameň. This exceptional exhibition has been prepared on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Bábkarská Bystrica festival and introduces the five puppet theatres that began to shape modern Slovak puppetry in the 1950s and later stood at the cradle of the national puppet theatre festival.
