Located in the city of Tournai’s historical heart, the Peeters Residence is now a home for a non-typical museum dedicated to every form of puppetry. The Puppetry Arts Museum will bring you to the discovery of its hidden treasures ... they come from the four corners of the Earth. This travel around the world will lead you to meet the most popular characters of the european puppet theater that is known by the children and the grown-ups, but also the figures and techniques from african and asian traditions. Besides its museum’s heritage, the Puppetry Center also offers temporary exhibitions, on-demand animations for schools, workshops for children and adults or puppet shows.
