HANDS DOWN the BEST thing to do in Atlanta. There's so much to look at and as a kid that grew up with a strong Jim Henson presence in my household growing up, I love this so much. So underrated <3

What a wonderful place to take children of all ages! The Center for Puppetry Arts puts on fabulous puppet shows that delight all; even adults. The staff of puppeteers are amazing. Saw “Stella Luna” today with my 3 young grandchildren and they loved it. So did I! Afterwards we attended a workshop where they were able to make their own Stella Luna puppet out of cardboard. Upon leaving we were able to purchase puppets at the gift shop. A membership to this Atlanta city gem is well worth the fee!

I had mentioned this museum to my boyfriend on our trip to Atlanta. Although it was not a priority, it ended up being one of my favorite sights. However, be warned - this museum is definitely catered to children but is great for any curious adult wanting to learn more or relieve some childhood nostalgia. They even have a special exhibit right now on the dark crystal. Definitely an underrated amenity in Atlanta!

What a fun museum. The Jim Henson exhibit was great. Brought back a lot of childhood memories. Also saw a puppet show which was really well done.

As a fan of the Muppets and The Dark Crystal, I enjoyed my every moment in the Center for Puppetry Arts. (Well, I didn't spend much time in the "International Puppets" section.) If you grew up with the Muppets and Sesame Street, you'll enjoy meeting your friends again. And if you remember The Dark Crystal (now being remade for Netflix), you'll enjoy its side exhibit, too. I only had an hour before closing time and it wasn't enough time for me to appreciate everything on offer.
