The puppets of Chicago's famous Kungsholm Miniature Grand Opera are back by popular demand! Experience the Kungsholm legacy in person once more as dozens of new puppets from the collection return to center stage, alongside original set pieces, props and related ephemera.

From 1941 to 1970, these puppets entertained audiences with operatic performances after a Swedish-themed dinner at the Kungsholm restaurant in downtown Chicago.
Learn about the history of the theater and the experiences of the people behind its success and the visitors who kept coming back for more.
