ºLocated in a privileged place and symbol of the city of Cádiz such as the Puertas de Tierra, and respecting the appearance and distribution of the original construction, is the Puppet Museum; a space whose main objective is to exhibit, document and preserve the memory of the activity of puppeteers, companies, craftsmen and creators both Spanish and the rest of the world.
The Puppet Museum has 1,500 meters and has 18 recovered vaults, which are distributed between the first floor and the ground floor of this attractive architectural enclave. The entrance to the Museum is through the courtyard of the old Fire Station, located on one side of the tower of the Puertas de Tierra. The installations have been adapted to museum use with several actions such as the treatment of the exterior space, the recovery and the enhancement of the old connection of the barracks and glacis, treatment of the interiors and recovery of the original ventilation systems.
The museum focuses its content on the permanent exhibition "Puppets of the World", with pieces from the collection acquired by the Cádiz City Council from Ismael Peña in 2008. This collection consists of more than 500 items, among which there are some 350 international puppets .
