Founded in 1985 by Jean Bindschedler, a painter, sculptor and creator of puppets, the Swiss Puppet Museum now has a collection of over 3'000 pieces. These puppets, masks, shadows and paper theatres make up a collection that is unique in Switzerland.
A video-viewing area, a space for playing with puppets, a library and archives are also at the disposal of visitors.

On the same premises, there are regular performances by the Théâtre des Marionnettes de Fribourg, which, over the years, has become an important cultural institution in the town and the region.
