What people are saying about Atlanta

The Jim Henson Exhibit was just incredible. I got way more emotional than I expected. Seeing these characters in person was like visiting old childhood friends. There are fond memories stitched inside that felt and fur! Puppetry is magical and The Center for Puppetry Art puts that magic right in front of your face! The facility is clean and neat, the gift shop is well stocked and full of curiosities and trinkets, and the price of admission is worth every cent - no strings attached! Thank you all for a magical experience! Can't wait to visit again next time I'm in Atlanta!

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.
