MOA presents a new exhibition that reveals our enduring fascination with storytelling — Shadows, Strings and Other Things: The Enchanting Theatre of Puppets. This enchanting exhibition illustrates the role puppets have played around the world in the transmission of cultural knowledge, stories, and values from generation to generation.
