摘要The National Museum of Natural Science’s puppet shows were first developed for the
“Rhythms of Life” exhibition in 2006. They were produced over a 3-month period and
performed for 2 months in the summer of 2006. The author was the coordinator for this project. Important tasks for producing the puppet shows were given to museum docents and volunteers. There were many brainstorming sessions in which the scripts were written, the puppets were designed and the props and staging were created, as all worked cooperatively. In the beginning, museum docents doubted their acting abilities and expressed fear. But, after several training sessions and some experience, the museum docents and volunteers gained confidence, and the shows were a success.
The aim of this article is to attempt to understand who attended these puppet shows, the characteristics of these puppet shows, the difficulties encountered in their development and the reflections of the team. These puppet shows were analyzed from the perspectives of 520 visitors, 6 museum docents and 12 volunteers via observations and questionnaires. The findings included that the puppet shows were enjoyable and memorable, especially for young children. Visitors thought that the puppet shows were easy to understand. They chose these words most often to describe them: genial, warm, popular, informative, interesting, entertaining and exciting. Museum docents felt that the puppet shows promoted learning, attracted visitors, had interesting stories, aroused curiosity, were memorable, had rich content, and provided innovative interpretation. A big challenge was to express both emotional content and scientific content through puppetry. Some of the museum docents felt that the puppet shows aroused the curiosity and interest of the audience and produced higher interest in museum tours. Such shows may not be as detailed as traditional learning guides, but they may be more effective.
To conclude, this study may be of importance in documenting visitor and docent opinions regarding museum puppet shows, as well as providing museum professionals with new ideas on how to transform educational activities using museum theater and puppetry. It might be useful for museum educators to be aware of the possibilities of innovative interpretation in science education.
