If you love Jim Henson, you will be in heaven. Lots of attention to his work--Sesame Street, Dark Crystal, Labyrinth. Try to go when they are having a performance. Not a must-do., but enjoyable. Close to the High Museum and there is free parking.

The shows are well designed to appeal to kids and, hopefully, broaden their sphere outside of an electronic screen device.The shows appeal to adults, as well.

I wouldn't bring little kids here unless your ready to explain to them that miss piggy and kermit are not real. That said the jim henson exhibit is really neat. It's a cute little museum.

We went in with no expectations and were pleasantly surprised at all the iconic characters that were inside. We were incredibly fortunate to see the Jim Henson collection as a temporary exhibit.

Great museum with a wonderful array of puppets old and new. Little videos giving information available and the best exhibit and information on Jim Henson and all the muppets. Will say the Puppet show was rather silly but all the children enjoyed.

I've been a Jim Henson fanatic pretty much since birth. I traveled to Atlanta specifically for the Center of Puppetry Arts to see the Jim Henson wing and the Labyrinth exhibit and it did not disappoint. Every corner I turned I let out an audible...More

Do you have to purchase tickets in advance for the museum or can you get them when you go to the museum that day?
