Transforming the Center for Puppetry Arts

In 1978, Kermit the Frog and Jim Henson cut the ribbon to open the Center for Puppetry Arts. Since then, the Center has inspired generations of children and adults through our performances, educational workshops, and exhibitions.

Now, this expansion will bring the Center’s world-renowned collection and the largest collection of Henson’s art to a wider audience, and will continue to make the Center a one-of-a-kind experience within the world of puppetry.


The Jim Henson Collection

In 2007, Jim Hensonís family announced a momentous gift of puppets and props to the Center for Puppetry Arts. We are thrilled that approximately half of our expanded museum space is dedicated to the Jim Henson Collection.

This interactive exhibition follows Hensonís prolific imagination chronologically, transporting visitors through environments that typified the master puppeteerís world such as Jimís Office and the Television Studio.

In addition to learning how Hensonís characters came to life and are still performed, visitors can view iconic puppets such as Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.

The Global Collection

The Global Collection celebrates puppetry traditions in major cultures from around the world. Highlighting the history of puppetry in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas, this Collection also demonstrates the use of the art form as a teaching and communication tool.

Organized by continent, artifacts are displayed with rich, contextual backdrops and hands-on interactives that encourage patrons to immerse themselves in puppetry traditions from around the world.
