Li Tien-lu Hand Puppet Historical Museum

Audio Guide

Founded by Taiwan’s “national treasure,” late puppet master Li Tien-lu, the center is the first of its kind in Taiwan. It displays notes for puppets’ facial expressions, puppet costumes, and musical instruments which master Li used for puppet shows in his life, as well as precious old scripts.

In the performing hall on the first floor, there is a large traditional “attic” stage. In the exhibition hall on the third floor, puppet heads, puppet costumes, and stage pops are shown. Video and audio guides will start as soon as visitors come in, for them to learn more about puppetry as a traditional type of art on their own.

Fun Facts

In the museum, you can color a white puppet at the DIY area, or watch an instruction film at the touch-screen display area on the third floor. You can also see varieties of puppet costumes hung on the display racks, which can turn 360 degrees to render a full view to visitors.

The museum presents puppet dramas at 2:30 p.m. every month; call the service personnel for the monthly drama schedule.
