In an effort to explain the historical and cultural importance of the puppet theatre, the Education Suite in Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is home to a selection of puppets from the John M Blundall collection that represent a wide range of countries and cultures.

This is the case that can be found in Kelvingrove’s Education Suite. Click on a puppet to see a bigger picture. A few of the puppets have a description but most as yet do not. We will write these up as soon as possible
