​The marionette is one of the oldest forms of puppet. Derived from the French word for “Little Mary”, the marionette is operated with strings from above.


The earliest written records of this form of puppetry have been found in works from Ancient Greece dating from the 5th century BC. This exhibition looks at a range of marionettes, from Victorian times to the present day, and how they are made and operated.​
