I had low expectations when I saw that this museum was included in the castle entrance ticket. Its quirky and has a rather dark and moody atmosphere that may not appeal to all. Our 2 children aged 10 and 12 absolutely loved it as it...More

Within the Ljubljana Castle, this museum is unique. It is a well done museum and very interesting. Displaying a history of marionettes, it is an interactive museum. Unknown to us were the marionette performances done for adults. When visiting the castle, do pay a visit...More

This puppetry museum is in the Castle in Ljubljana. Many interesting things on puppetry if you are into it. Children are like to enjoy the visit. There is also a store that sells puppets.
