I visited because they currently have a Labyrinth exhibit. Very nice exhibit with items from the movie, and notes about each prop.

My friend dragged me to this. I feel in love with the place. I think we could have spent another hour in there but they were getting ready to close. It will put you in a good mood seeing all the puppets from childhood.

Went when they had the Henson/Labyrinth exhibit on and it was beautifully done. The world collection is worth a good hour or two, and lots of hands on and color and kid programs and we had a blast.

Not a budget breaker, either. I absolutely loved it.

I really loved this place. We were not able to attend a live performance, but my 8 year old boys and I really enjoyed the museum. The puppets from around the world exhibit was great and had several cool interactive displays. They even had several Julie Taymor pieces from the Lion King musical. Visit this side first & then head over to the Jim Henson exhibit and spend some time. We've been showing our kids old Muppet Shows, Fraggle Rock & Jim Henson movies for years, so we all really enjoyed seeing some of the puppets from back in the day. The highlight for us was seeing The Fraggle Rock Dozers. Cute gift shop as well!
