About the Bob Baker Marionette Theater 
The Bob Baker Marionette Theater envisions an inclusive community empowered with a creative toolbox to better the world around them. The theater has always been a place for LGBTQ+ artists to make art in LA and come together in a safe community that fosters artistic expression and joyful creation. 

The Bob Baker Marionette Theater is an iconic Los Angeles institution that has served millions of children and families since 1963. As a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization, their mission is to educate, celebrate, and inspire imagination through Puppetry and the Allied Arts. With over 3,000 handcrafted puppets and a passionate and creative staff, the theater strives to make the world as imaginative as they see it. Now in a new Highland Park home, they are actively expanding programs to reach families, adults, and their community at large. 

 A separate museum admission ticket is required to visit the galleries. Children 17 and under are free.
