The Museum of Puppet Theater Culture (PuK) is a museum in Bad Kreuznach with an attached workshop, its own theater space with regular performances and many self-experience tasting stations. It opened on April 23, 2005 and is home to the extensive collection of Karl-Heinz Rother (1928-2010), now owned by the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, as well as many other masterpieces of puppet theater (PuK Collection).
On a 750 m² exhibition area, a permanent exhibition shows the world of puppet theater. On display will be the different forms of puppet theater from all over the world as well as the range of puppet theater of the 20th century in Germany. The development of the puppet theater from folk entertainment to an independent theater genre and also the TV puppet theater is made clear here. In addition, there are special exhibitions every year, such as in 2008 to Astrid Lindgren and the life's work of Prof. Albrecht Roser.
