The exposition at NUKU Museum begins in the room of material cultures, which demonstrates to the guest that anything that can be brought to life is considered a puppet at the theatre. The following rooms are dedicated to different puppet types and there, you can play with desk dolls, marionette dolls, glove dolls, and masks. You can try on costumes and wigs in the actors’ wardrobe. Additionally, you can craft stage décor at the workbench of the stage designer and try being an actor in the mask or shadow theatre.
