I would love to take this opportunity to invite all of the Puppeteers of Puget Sound members and their families and friends to come to Bremerton to see our newly installed exhibit “Masterpieces from the Collection.” If you have never visited the Valentinetti Puppet Museum in Bremerton, you are in for a treat. Currently the Museum has over 1300 pieces from all over the world which have been given to the Museum from a wide variety of donors, domestic and foreign.
Museum Hours: Wednesday through Saturday, 11 am – 4 pm. The Museum is also open for Bremerton’s First Friday Art Walk,
May 4th, 5-8 pm. If you all would like to arrange for a private tour at some other date please contact me and see what we can arrange.
