Just a short walk from the Old Town, the Marionette Museum makes an interesting diversion, especially for those traveling with children. 

Housed in the former Church of St. Jost (the interior of which is also of interest), this fun tourist attraction features numerous fascinating displays that provide insight into the evolution of this centuries-old form of entertainment. 

Exhibits include stages and puppets from the 19th century, complete marionette theaters, as well as modern collections from the National Marionette Museum in Prague.
