During the time before television and Internet, puppeteers represented much anticipated guests in villages and towns. Many of them called the area around Bad Liebenwerda home. Families, such as the "Puppet Richters" in which the tradition was passed on over generations. A trailer and a transport wagon, and off they were. The stage naturally required the most space. The puppets were transported in boxes. The replaceable heads and self-tailored costumes were packaged separately. Performances were made up of pieces such as "Blanka, das Fischer- und Schiffermädchen" or "Kasper der Kesselflicker". When business began to slow down, some puppeteers switched to showmanship and at least remained in the realm of traveling trade. The museum in Bad Liebenwerda is dedicated to the subject so that memories of the old tradition are not lost. The collection of the puppeteer "Karli" Gierhold from Dobra forms the foundation of the museum. It is also the origin of this box.
