Join the curators in a special tour of the current puppet exhibit at The Portland
Puppet Museum. Each puppet has a story and now has a voice as we journey through
their history from birth, through their career, and finally to their new home here
in Portland, Oregon.
Laugh with Ping Pong the Panda as he and his colorful Panda cousins explain the
history of each different type of puppet and its country of origin ending in a
musical number with Kung Fu fighting chopsticks and expandable Chinese takeout
boxes, with fortune cookies exploding in the finale for all to enjoy.
Film shorts of various puppets in action over the years, bring cheers from the
visitors as we watch puppet movies possibly including a Hermit Crab exploring the
ocean floor, an elegant seven foot rabbit puppet spoofing the Tango, and the
beloved goat marionettes cavort from The Sound of Music.
Learn how Portland's own children/family fantasy series, The Tales of Belvuria was
created on DVD and books by the Olde World Puppet Theatre Studios.
The tour lasts about 1 1/2 hours, with plenty of time to stroll around and ask the
questions we all haveand bring back some wonderful memories of puppets from our
childhood to today's marvels in television and movies.
The museum can handle a maximum of 25 adults or children INCLUDING
Price for the private visit is $175.00 per group.
