It cost $10.50 per person, but was worth it. They had a very interesting display of puppets from around the word. The Jim Henson exhibit was outstanding. They have some of the original Sesame Street characters.

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

Do you have to purchase tickets in advance for the museum or can you get them when you go to the museum that day?
