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!

We really enjoyed it earlier this week! So much better than our experience at Greenville Zoo in SC. My young son and husband did the treetop trail zip line and enjoyed that too! The park is huge and there is a lot to see. Definitely will be going again soon!!
