L i Tien-Lu Hand Puppet Historical Museum was established in 1996. It is the first professional puppet museum in Taiwan and it was built to commemorate hand puppet master Li Tien-Lu and his legacy in the art of hand puppets. The museum displays exhibits such as Li’s puppets, masks, costumes, music instruments and scripts. There are also user-friendly audio-visual tour guides for visitors to understand the art of puppetry. The most special part is the performance space open for children. Everyone can go up to the stage and perform his or her own story with fun improvisation. The museum is a very lively place, not all like a typical dull exhibition hall.NTD $70
