Hear From Our Visitors!


The Jim Henson Exhibit was just incredible. I got way more emotional than I expected. Seeing these characters in person was like visiting old childhood friends. There are fond memories stitched inside that felt and fur! Puppetry is magical and the Center for Puppetry Art puts that magic right in front of your face!”

Visitor to the Worlds of Puppetry Museum


I’m 71 years old and my whole life I’ve loved puppets. I was very excited when I retired here to learn that the Center for Puppetry Arts is just an hour drive away. I’ve enjoyed the shows there and enjoyed the museum exhibits. My son took me and his family there for my birthday several years ago before I became a member. My grandchildren, who are in their 20s, were amazed to see your production of Rudolph. It’s like a Broadway show!
