Puppet Center of the French Community


Photos 11122211.JPGAmong the some 1400 puppets which make up the wealth of the Puppet Center, one can find the marionettes of famous Belgian and European performers, traditional and contemporary puppets of Belgian, French, British, Asian and African origins, with celebrities such as Tchantches, Woltje, Guignol ... Indonesian shadow puppets and yet many more.
A former manor, this exquisite residence of Neo-classic design, with its caryatids, its multi-colored dome, its spiral staircase in Sarazine style and its Neo-gothic ornaments, gives the marionettes the shelter they deserve: a home with a soul.
