The Train Puppet Theater in Liberty Bell Park offers programs (in Hebrew, but nonetheless interesting) for children and hosts an International Puppet Theater Festival every other year in August. Call tel. 02/561-8514 for information, or check the listing in Friday’s “Jerusalem Post.” The Israel Museum’s lively Children’s Wing has extremely engaging exhibits, many of them hands-on including workshops in recycled materials. Also on site:a library of children’s books you can sit and read together
