Puppet donations

Our museum boasts a collection of over 5,000 puppets and accesories. Most of them are Swiss (Elisabeth Haübi, Alfred Hostettler, Eric Weiss, Else Hausin, etc.), but there are also puppets from Asia (Indonesia, India, Burma and China), Europe (France, Italy, Czech Republic, Greece, Russia, etc.) and Africa.

We are very interested in enriching our collection and are open to donations of puppets.

If you would like to make a donation, please use the contact form below or send an e-mail to info@marionnette.ch.

Photographs are appreciated and will help us determine if the donation will fit into our collection. We will contact you to collect the items or to confirm the deposit at the museum reception. We will also ask you for as much information as possible about the objects you have brought with you.
