It's fun to see Big Bird and the muppets. We didn't have any children with us, but I could tell that the kids who went to the show loved it. It's worth a trip for kids and for muppet and puppet fans.

What a fun and unique place! We did the tour, which I recommend, because our guide was so knowledgeable. We learned so much about the different types of puppets, and the Jim Henson exhibit had some familiar faces and some ones not seen as much....More

The whole museum is great. Make sure you see the new Jim Henson addition. Also, go to one of the plays put on in the theatre. These are incredible. We saw Beauty and the Beast. You forget you are seeing a puppet show.
