Through collaboration with Bremerton’s sister city, Kure City, Japan, the Aurora Valentinetti Puppet Museum in downtown Bremerton has recently received three puppets in the Bunraku style.
According to museum curator Stanley W. Hess, since its opening in 1999, the museum has received more than 1,000 collectable items through private donations. A large portion of the collection is from Asian countries. ♦
