Anyone who is a fan of puppetry or more specifically a Muppet or Jim Henson enthusiast you must go to the Center For Puppetry Arts in Atlanta Georgia.  This permanent exhibit has more then the smithsonian when it comes to all things Jim Henson puppets from the earliest part of he and Jane Henson's career as well as personal items the light up paper mache moose head that was in his office for his whole career.

From Sam and Friends to Dog City this has museum has it all.   The world puppetry exhibit also has an amazing collection of historical puppets from all over the globe to stop motion puppets from Coraline, Tim Burton's Corpse Bride, Gumby and Pokey the original masks from Julie Tamor's Lion King and the list goes on!

If you live in the area or planning on going to Dragon-Con next Sept put this on your schedule!

you can see Emit Otter's row boat!

What about sprocket from Fraggle Rock?

Or this little known character who's name I can't remember.

They also have live performances, the next big show is Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer.
Someone thought I look a bit like Hank the Elf, they may have a point.
