In 1948, Fritz Wortelmann, a man from Bochum, began to build up an extensive collection of items on puppet theatre. Today, over 70 years later, the collection named after him can be experienced in the most extraordinary way. With VR glasses, visitors can immerse themselves in a virtual world where they can move around independently. In five rooms they travel through the international history of puppet theatre from a night market in Asia to an ancient marketplace. Accompanying them at all times is a puppet replica of Fritz Wortelmann, who guides visitors through the exhibition, explains the exhibits and provides background information - including information on research into puppetry arts. The exhibition is suitable for people from the age of 12. Every visitor can decide for him/herself how deeply they want to go into any theme.
