Center for Puppetry Arts says
Grand opening festivities will include well-known walk-around Henson characters, photo opportunities, and other engaging activities that will make the day a festival-like celebration. In conjunction with the grand opening events, the Center’s annual holiday classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer™ returns to the stage. This long-awaited day is not to be missed!

After many years of fundraising, design and construction, the Center for Puppetry Arts invites you to celebrate the completion of its “Believe in Make Believe” campaign and the official opening of its new museum on Saturday, November 14, 2015! The Worlds of Puppetry Museum will feature two galleries: one devoted to the Global Collection and one dedicated to the Jim Henson Collection, the world’s most comprehensive collection of Jim Henson’s puppets and artifacts. Patrons will enjoy the newly expanded 7,500 square foot museum space, as well as a renovated entryway, expanded museum store, new research library, and other exciting updates to the Center.

“Great museums are characterized by their ability to continually educate, inspire and evolve,” said Vincent Anthony, Center for Puppetry Arts founding Executive Director. “Our team has been preparing for this day for many years, and we are thankful for the generous contributions from the Jim Henson family, our benevolent donors, generous Members, and the support of our community. This is a true turning point for the Center for Puppetry Arts – and we welcome visitors to come discover the magic and wonder that lie behind these doors.”
