While my son is not a big puppet fan, we had a great time at a birthday party here. Show was very well done.

What an amazing place! This is not just a museum with dolls on strings but a real performing arts center. The shows we have seen have all been very intertaining. One was geared for children and the others for adults. I enjoyed taking my young nephews there for a unique entertainment experience, but its really the grown up shows that I go back for. Its pure magic!

I didn't even know I liked puppets or puppetry until I came to this place. It is fantastic! The puppets are fascinating and the shows are great. There's an entire exhibit about Jim Henson and the Muppets of Sesame Street fame.

My son and I went with his school on a class field trip. We learned a lot. Very educational. We recommend getting some homeschool friends together and taking a fieldtrip down to the Center for Puppetry Arts for a day of Education.

I went with my husband and we had an interesting time. We did the Jim Henson guided tour and it was well worth the $10.75 per ticket. The guide was great she knew her stuff. The tour lasted an hour and we now know everything about Jim Henson’s career. We also looked at the World of Puppets exhibit it was very neat. The place is worth checking out.
