We love the puppet shows. The museum is amazing. I never realized how tall Big Bird was until I saw the display in person. We take our grandson to almost every puppet show which is about every month or so. Our four year old grandson is always excited to see the newest show. More people should know about this because it is fascinating how many different types of puppetry there are.

The new museum is fabulous! Bravo to the Center for the new Jim Henson wing! Big bird, Grover (my personal fave,) figures from the Dark Crystal, and Corpse Bride, and more, make this museum a must see for all "nerds" like me. Maps needs to do a new drive by. This picture does not do it justice.

We took my daughter to see "The True Story About the Three Little Pigs by Adolf Wolf." Which in my personal opinion is much funnier than the original. When you first come in, it has a museum set up that you can look at and some interactive games for kids. The theater was small and they used regular metal folding chairs which was ok, but not comfortable for long time sitting. The acting was so entertaining. The props were excellent they drew the kids and us adults in to the performance. It was very engaging. My daughter loved it she couldn't be still. Afterwards, you got to go upstairs and build your own wolf puppet which was just a bonus.

Amazing job on the Henson exhibit. I did miss the old puppets of the world exhibit. With the robotic Phoenix to welcome you and the room with all the wide eyed puppets staring at you and even the puppet in the floor (my personal favorite). The skeksis is gone but replaced with Aughra and Jen. The space pigs are gone but replaced with so many great muppets. This center is a great little jewel of Atlanta it is a must see for locals and tourists. Kids will love seeing their favorite Sesame Street characters (and grown ups will too). Who doesn't love Big Bird?!

The center is fun for kids. We saw a holiday show there and it was pretty entertaining. The museum portion is also kind of neat.

I went to the Center For Puppetry Arts with my girlfriend near the end of their Jim Henson ode. It was absolutely charming. From the outside and by the parking lot, you expect the museum to be nothing too special, a bit shabby and run-down -- but once you get inside, those preconceptions just wash away. Everything was so well done, with a splash of whimsy that brought me back to feeling like a kid. The permanent exhibit was fascinating and surprisingly interactive. HIGHLY recommended!

RMy kids (4 & 9 years) love the puppet shows here we've seen a few and it's always a good experience for them. They lived the build a puppet workshop too that is included in the ticket price. You have to buy the tickets ahead of time or they will most likely be sold out though. The museum is not really impressive I wish they had more fun and interactive activities in it also some of the puppets are a little creepy so they scared my 4 year old but still a good and fun thing to do with kids
