“I went to see Jim Henson's puppets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

I went specifically to see Jim Henson's puppets. Even though there are currently only a few on display, seeing some of the original drawings for the puppets, seeing the history of i.e. Fraggle Rock., seeing the short movie about famous songs etc. it was very interesting and worth while. The fact that the current exhibit will be extended in 2014 to include more puppets of Henson's will make it even more worth while when the new exhibits opens.

“Absolutely bizarre and wonderful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

I think they put on lots of shows for kids, but I've only been to the evening shows for adults and they're really a lot of fun. If you have a good sense of humor you'll really enjoy their offbeat slightly twisted productions. Great to take in a show with a group of friends.

“Great exhibits & puppet show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

We loved this place and my only complaint is that I wish there was more of it to see! The "Galapagos George" show was very good and my 6 & 8 yo boys loved all the different puppet animals in it. The Jim Henson exhibit was my favorite by far - it made me nostalgic and featured all my favorite characters. I do wish admission covered both shows being performed that day - we were done exploring after about an hour and wished we had more to do/see.
