Small part of a larger museum. The display was not just puppets, but included lots of history on Jim Henson’s life and creative processes.

Because my children grew up with Jim Henson muppets, I had interest in this museum. Jim's life was well documented. There were several scrapbooks of the history of Jim and his muppets.

If you love Kermit the frog this is where he was born...don't miss it and quick little stop to break up your travels and if you are on a motorcycle they will let you put the big Kermit on your bike with you.

We drove down from Memphis and showed up at 10am on a Saturday. Nobody was there to open it up. I wouldn't plan a day around it.

We visited here about 5 years ago so we stopped again. It is really a cute little place. There is a lifesize Kermit so you can sit next to him and get a great photo. There are all kinds of memorabilia and the lady there...More
