Welcome to Puppet Theatre Koos Kneus


PUPPET THEATRE KOOS KNEUS will re-open after the summer holidays !

We are very pleased that our puppet theater can open again at the beginning of September! And that, as expected, without restrictive measures!

You will soon find our brand new program on this site. The performances, provided by a variety of guest actors are as usual accompanied by beautiful face painting for free. And of course the costumes are ready again!

It is also possible to celebrate a private children’s party with us outside opening hours.

For everyone: have a nice summer holiday and hope to see you afterwards!

So keep an eye on our website or send an e-mail to kooskneus@kooskneus.nl for more information. Tel: 020 6928532


Koos Kneus (‘Clumsy Jim’) is a cozy puppet theatre in Amsterdam-Oost.

When? Children’s performances take place every Sunday and Wednesday. There are shows aimed at toddlers aged 2 to 4 years and shows for children aged 4 to 8 years. Please check our calendar for show times.

What? The performances last 30 to 40 minutes.

Face paint After and before the shows, a professional face painter will turn all children into beautiful princesses, tigers, pirates or butterflies. There are lots of dress-up sets to wear too.

Food/drink There’s free coffee, tea, lemonade and water. Also, help yourself to our signature speculaasjes!

In Dutch? All performances are conducted in Dutch, but the toddler shows especially are not language-heavy and easy to follow.

Where? Our theatre is located at Iepenplein 40 in Amsterdam-Oost (near metro station Wibautstraat and OLVG-Oost hospital). Find directions here.
