Puppets in UK Museums and Collections

Search here for museums in specific locations or use the nationwide keyword search for items of specific interest. Not all the items listed are on public display, but are generally available to those doing advanced research. We therefore suggest that before you travel, you contact the museum or collection in advance if you wish to view specific items. The list is not exhaustive. Please contact us if you have, or know of, puppet-related items which you feel should be included.

There are two methods available to help you locate puppet-related items: by museum location or by keyword. Fill in any one of the boxes and click the search button.
