Aside from the puppets from around the world, the main highlight is the Jim Henson gallery. I freely admit I cried several times seeing old friends from Sesame Street and the Muppets. There are many other surprises for Henson/Muppet fans including 'Emmett Otter', 'Labyrinth', 'Fraggles',...More

You'll laugh, you'll enjoy, you'll watch your child's face as they crack up right along with the puppets! What a show! So much fun!

This was so amazing and fun. I have always liked Jim Henson and his puppets. We saw a play there and going back for the same thing in the fall.

It's a great place to take the kids. Be sure to go for the family series shows in addition to visiting the museum. Great customer service! Really enjoyed the show. Loved the Jim Henson exhibit. The puppet making was a real hit with the kids.

Great for teeny children and for any adult that is a child at heart. You can subscribe to children's shows and to adult R rated shows, and everything in between. There is also a puppet museum that includes some Jim Henson puppets, an original Madam...More
