Founded in 1985 by Jean Bindschedler, a painter, sculptor and creator of puppets, the Swiss Puppet Museum now has a collection of over 3'000 pieces. These puppets, masks, shadows and paper theatres make up a collection that is unique in Switzerland. A video-viewing area, a space for playing with puppets, a library and archives are also at the disposal of visitors. On the same premises, there are regular performances by the Théâtre des Marionnettes de Fribourg.
