World Day Of Puppetry says
Join us on March 18 for our annual World Day of Puppetry celebration! We have some exciting activities both big and small planned this year. Some activities are free of charge, and others require Museum or show admission. Free activities take place 12-3 pm.

The centerpiece of this year's celebration is the unveiling of the Center's very own Tiny Door by Tiny Doors ATL! Our door will be door #11 on the Tiny Doors map, and the first permanent installation in Midtown.
