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 have
and bring back some wonderful memories of puppets from our childhood to today's marvels in television
The museum can handle approximately 18 adults or children with an additional three chaperones.
Price for the private visit is $125.00 per group.
