It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Join us this season for an immersive puppet-filled celebration. Rudolph soars back into town and back onto the stage for live in-person performances. In addition, this year we’re thrilled to announce a very special exhibition featuring Rudolph and Santa puppets from the original film production of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™.  These extremely rare puppets went up for auction last year and are on long-term loan to the Center. Learn about the history behind the iconic poem-turned-song Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and the classic 1964 stop motion television special of the same name.

There are two ways to experience the season with the Center: an all-inclusive ticket that includes the show, museum entry, and the Create-A-Puppet Workshop™, or a Museum-Only ticket. Please see the details below.
