Update from the Valentinetti Puppet Museum

VALENTINETTI PUPPET MUSEUM, 280 Fourth Street, Bremerton, WA 98337.

Like everyone, COVID and its closures has been catastrophic for us.  Most of 2020 the VPM and its host museum have been closed.  For a short period of time in the fall we were able to open observing all of the protocols.  In the late fall the Curator began installing a new holiday exhibit “All the World’s a Stage,” featuring puppet stages from around the world and different cultures—toy and performance in the collection.  Just as that process was nearing completion we had to close again.

Please check our website for reopening information or call the museum at 360.479.6226. Questions about the museum’s current exhibits or its collections can be directed to the Curator, Stanley Hess.  Exhibits change 3 or 4 times a year.  “All the World’s a Stage” will be held over for several months when we are able to re-open.
