“There’s just something visceral about moving a puppet frame by frame. There’s a magical quality about it. Maybe you can get smoother animation with computers, but there’s a dimension and emotional quality to this kind of animation that fits these characters and this story.”
Tim Burton.

You’ve probably heard of Tim. Chances are you even love at least one of his films.
Having started his career at Disney during the last millennium, Tim has dabbled in live-action, stop-motion, and 3D animation, developing an original and memorable style that has yet to be copied successfully.

Through October 11th, the most underrated museum in Lisbon, aka the Museu da Marioneta, is proud to present “Tim Burton – The Animation Puppets,” an exhibition that brings you face to face with the original drawings, puppets, models, drafts, and character studies used in the production of classics like Mars Attaks!, Corpse Bride, Frankenweenie, and more.

Bring the kids, and/or the kid in you.

Museum hours:
Tuesday-Sunday, 10h-18h.

ENTRY: 2€ (free for kids under 5yo).

RSVP your spot here.
