My husband and I really enjoyed this museum. We weren't sure whether it would be a place for children only, but we ended up pleasantly surprised! The Jim Henson gallery was very interesting. There was an excellent one hour marionette puppet show that we enjoyed....More
While the exhibits from across the world are pretty good, the workshop was very good. Kids get to make a small paper puppet, all the material and instructions are provided.
Workshop is Good for kids between 4-10. Didn't get to see the show
It's an interesting set of exhibits. Maybe about 45 minutes at your own pace. My favorite displays were the puppets from across the globe; it lets you realize how much of a shared cultural experience puppetry is. The display had some kid-friendly aspects, but was...More
MY wife and I made a trip to Atlanta just to see the Labyrinth exhibit. It is her favorite movie and she loves David Bowie so it was a must see for her. The Henson exhibit was amazing for me as I got to see...More
I found this on a whim looking at Trip advisor on things to do in ATL. And just my luck the LABYRINTH exhibit was here so we HAD to go. First off the building itself is funky and fun-and after you buy your ticket (regular...More
Stopped in here coming back from South Georgia Heading for Tennessee. Wonderful Museum. Lots of activities for the kids. Lots of interactive games for the kids as well. Three separate venues inside all four price of one ticket. And we may not even watch the...More
We enjoyed our day at the Puppetry Center for Arts. . .and the Children's Group that attended with us is still talking about their experience. Not only is this place a "treat" in the sense of experiencing "puppetry" but it was a delight to have...More
Absolutely loved this place.
I love museums in general, but only a few exhibitions make me want to go through a second time. This was one of them (both for their permanent collection and the Labrynth special exhibition).
I went through, smiling the whole way,...More
This totally depends on you, and your group. We had two toddlers, and I think we spent about 1.5 hours. They have short attention spans, and we did not take in the show, which is wonderful, but an extra fee, and better for... More
This totally depends on you, and your group. We had two toddlers, and I think we spent about 1.5 hours. They have short attention spans, and we did not take in the show, which is wonderful, but an extra fee, and better for older children. If your group has kids especially interested in Muppets, or in puppetry in general, you could spend a few hours.
no just walk up to the window inside the door. you can save a couple of dollars purchasing thru their website but it is not necessary and not refundable. make sure to visit all three big rooms. I would not have known... More
no just walk up to the window inside the door. you can save a couple of dollars purchasing thru their website but it is not necessary and not refundable. make sure to visit all three big rooms. I would not have known about the third, if my step son had not researched it before we went. one ticket gets you everywhere in on building. no extra charges in less you make a gift shop purchase.
