This is an excellent theatre to take the kids but if you are out-and-about site-seeing, this is an equally enchanting theatre from the outside.  The theatre is based on a fairy-tale castle surrounded by children's story characters such as Pinocchio and Thumbelina. The Kiev puppet theatre is the oldest of its kind in Ukraine. It was originally founded in 1927 as part of the Kiev Franko theatre for children. It is situated in Mariinsky Park not far from the main street Khreschatyk and close to the Water Museum.
