The Valentinetti Puppet Museum is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Dedicated volunteers provide managerial and operational oversight of the museum and gift shop, which are open free to the public. Group tours are given by appointment for a small fee. Outstanding puppet history, education and entertainment in the theatre arts, primarily focusing on children, are offered to Kitsap County and the West Sound, Washington.
To provide community access to educational experiences of theatre arts and a museum of puppet history .
We plan to accomplish this by:
* Offering a full season of 5 or more plays each year, some productions with puppets and others with live actors;
* Providing an educational component through demonstrations or workshops led by the same professional actors of each performance or by our organizational members; and,
* Dedicating our resources to collecting, preserving, and presenting the history of puppetry, especially of the Pacific NW and the Pacific Rim, through the more than 1,000 puppets received from the collections of Aurora Valentinetti, Marshall Campbell, and other private and corporate donors from America and abroad.
