Saxon Fok Art Museum with Puppet Theatre Collection

Opened in 1913, the Museum of Folk Art in Saxony is housed in Jägerhof Palace in Dresden Neustadt, just a stone's throw from the Elbe River. Spread across three floors, it gives a rich and varied insight into the region's customs and traditions. Items on display include: hand-crafted wooden furniture, metal-forged objects, tin castings, pottery, glass-blowing art, wood-turnings, carvings, miners' arts and crafts, lace and bobbin cloths from the Erzgebirge, traditional Sorbian costumes and Seiffen toys. The puppet theatre collection is one of the largest in the world, with over 50,000 exhibits from Europe and Asia. Exhibits range from 200-year-old marionettes and hand puppets used at local fairs, to characters used in Bauhaus theatre and modern-day figurative puppets. For a special treat, visit the museum's popular Christmas and Easter exhibitions.

Hours: Closed on Mondays. Guided tours on request. Please note that the museum is closed Feb. - Nov. 2010 for remodeling.

Admission: Adults 3 €, Concessions 2 €, Children under 16 years free.
