In 1953, puppet theatre became part of the new theatre Folketeatret in Oslo. Since then, the puppet theatre has been located at Oslo Nye Theatre, at the Museum of Oslo, and finally in Trikkestallen at Torshov, where the puppet theatre has had its permanent location since 2003.

Puppet theater is about finding the stories only puppets can tell, and about experimenting to find out how they can do it. For 70 years, countless children and adults have been delighted, amazed and challenged by this very special kind of theatre, and generations of puppeteers, actors, musicians, designers, playwrights and directors have explored and developed the language of puppets.

The photo exhibition is on display in the courtyard of Frogner manor. You can see photos of old classics, award-winning shows, and more recent favourites. Inside the museum, you can see several familiar puppets on display.
