You can contact the Opera dei Pupi Turi Grasso directly for schedules.

But on last check, shows were held from June through September on Thursdays and Sundays.

Private performances were held throughout the year by appointment at a cost of 350 € per show for up to 50 people.

The museum was open every day throughout the year.

Thanks for the reply. Our hotel tried to contact but couldn't get hold of anyone. We went on a Sunday anyway and it was amazing. They did a short private show just for us 4 and the kids helped the puppet maker make some puppet accessories and went onstage to see how it all works for just 30 euro.we were able to purchase a puppet for 10 euro. Really lovely man and spent an hour with us. We then went to La Grotta restaurant which was amazing!

What a fantastic experience for your family Julia P!

That was really lovely of the Opera dei Pupi to do that for your family.

Hopefully you'll submit reviews for Opera dei Pupi, and La Grotta.

Thanks for reporting back.
