  • Information
    Introduction
    Chuncheon Puppet Theater, which is Korea’s first puppet theater, and Chuncheon Puppet Museum, which exhibits various materials about puppet shows, are located side by side on the Uiamho lakeside. As the Puppet Festival Chuncheon gained its popularity since its first opening in 1989, Chuncheon Puppet Theater and Chuncheon Puppet Museum were also opened in 2001 and 2004, respectively. At present, Chuncheon Puppet Theater is the main stage of the Puppet Festival Chuncheon, which is held every year, and provides a puppet show aside from the festival period. The museum displays various types of puppets from Korea and other countries, including Korea’s puppets from kkokdugaksi nori (Korean puppet play), France’s Guignols, and China’s shadow puppets. It also offers experience programs related to the exhibition. Besides a cafe with a great view by the museum, there are a playground, a waterside bike path, and a trail nearby, as well as Gangwon Provincial Arboretum, which is about 500 m away.
