A hidden gem of Atlanta! The Center of Puppetry Arts showcases the marvel of puppets we all love as well as its history. There were no crowds or lines which made me feel like I had the entire place to myself. I took a walk down memory lane as I admired the Sesame Street and the Muppets exhibit. And learned more about puppetry in other countries and cultures. A lovely addition to my travels!

If you love the Muppets this museum is one of the few places where you can see, up close, actual puppets, props and costumes from the Muppets, Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal, Sesame Street, Labyrinth, and more.

So fun and brought back some good memories. Jim Henson and his team were great for all generations. Their creativity was amazing, and to see how it all came together was interesting to see.

such variety of puppets. a lot of information, videos and my favorite the Jim Henson collection

This is the museum for you if you love Sesame street, The Dark Crystal, or Labyrinth.
