Immerse Yourself into the World of Thra

Open now through June 28, 2020. Immerse yourself in the imaginative world of Thra, featured in the movie The Dark Crystal (1982). This special exhibition discusses how the movie was a passion project for Jim Henson and how he needed the fantastical work of Brian Froud to make it come to fruition.

See the intricate artistry that went into the creation of this classic. From the original artwork and prototypes to the film’s original puppets including Aughra, Jen, a Mystic, a Skeksis, and more. Learn about the film’s lasting influence on films like the Star Wars trilogy, Jurassic Park, and more and see how the world of Thra has been given new life through fan-films, graphic novels, and a new prequel series The Dark Crystal: The Age of Resistance.
