If you love Kermit the frog this is where he was born...don't miss it and quick little stop to break up your travels and if you are on a motorcycle they will let you put the big Kermit on your bike with you.

We drove down from Memphis and showed up at 10am on a Saturday. Nobody was there to open it up. I wouldn't plan a day around it.
