The cottage houses a theater that produces enchanting marionette shows for children; past performances have included “Hansel and Gretel” and “Sleeping Beauty.” Built in Sweden, the cottage began life as a model of a schoolhouse and was shipped to Philadelphia for the 1876 Centennial Exposition. In 1877, the little building was brought to the west side of the park.
