The 2001-2002 season was a time of great change for the organization. The Admiral Theatre Foundation announced that the theatre with its expanding programs needed to take over the classroom and museum space occupied by ECT. This move allowed the Museum to locate to a street level location on Fourth Street in downtown Bremerton. With donated materials, carpet and labor the Museum and office of ECT were able to move into greatly expanded, and improved display space in time for the holiday season. With the help of volunteers the Museum and gift shop began to provide a public presence throughout the year. Since that first move to Fourth Street the Museum has made a second move two doors down from its first location. These new locations have improved public visibility and created a new tourist attraction to the changing Bremerton landscape.

Since moving to Fourth Street we have worked to establish an exciting gift shop with tempting items for all ages. The Museum introduces a series of rotating exhibits highlighting significant parts of the collection and tells the story of puppet history around the world. As word spreads about the Museum's presence in Bremerton, attendance and interest have grown. It is hoped with this attention, that public support will emerge and enable the Aurora Valentinetti Puppet Museum and Evergreen Children's Theatre to continue to grow and establish a permanent home and professional staff. Help support this exciting endeavor and bring your family and friends to Bremerton for a fun filled day on the shores of Puget Sound.

  • A unique collection of puppets spanning many decades.
  • Went here to kill time, will definitely be going back! It had lots of interesting things, although I I didn't get to spend a lot of time. It's also free!
