The Bucknell Marionettes are well-known as exemplary puppets in circles of experts but are better remembered by Linn County residents for the joy and wonder they inspired during school and public performances. Relive the magic of childhood through this exhibition or share your memories with the next generation! The exhibition will include 13 of the original Bucknell marionettes, video footage of the performances, and a hands-on area where visitors can try their hand at controlling a marionette. 


To celebrate the opening of this exhibit, an outdoor performance by the Bucknell Marionettes will be held at 10:00 AM and 11:30 AM on The History Center lawn. That’s So Cheesy food truck will be onsite.

Tickets: $5.00 per person

This is an outdoor event, please bring a lawn chair.

This exhibit is made possible by a generous gift from the Aegon Transamerica Foundation.
