This permanent exhibition of the Lutkovno gledališče Ljubljana (Ljubljana Puppet Theatre), situated at the Ljubljana Castle, will be featuring the milestones of the Slovenian puppetry history.
Thus presented to the visitors in the museum will be a variety of puppet heroes and puppet techniques; and after visiting the exhibition, they will be able to try their hand at puppetry-skills as well.
