Puppetry Art Center of Taipei

Puppetry Art Center of Taipei (2F, No. 99, Sec. 5, Civic Blvd., Songshan District, Taipei) – this place was born from a passion with puppetry. In 1998, Paul Lin, chairman of the Taiyuan Arts and Culture Foundation, donated space to house the center. After careful planning by the Taipei City Department of Cultural Affairs, the center was finally opened to provide a home for the preservation of puppetry culture. Located near the Living Mall, the center presents its traditional subject matter in a thoroughly modern setting. In addition to displays, the center arranges puppet shows and organizes fun and educational puppetry classes.

Admission: NT$50 (adult), NT$40 (students, military, police, and retired civil servants & teachers), free for seniors, disabled, unemployed and children under 3 years. Hours: 10:00 am – 5:00 pm (daily)(closed on Mondays). See the art center’s website for more info: https://www.pact.org.tw
