About Center for Puppetry Arts

It's all about the wonderful world of puppets at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta!

Puppets are amazing creations, and fascinating forms of entertainment, and they are great fun for kids too! At the Center For Puppetry Arts, it's not just learning that kids can enjoy, either. Here, they can take part in workshops, or enjoy a live performance, as well as experience puppets from all over the world!

There is even a museum filled with interactive exhibits that they can really explore and be amazed by!

Let's start with the family series, shall we? Here, the Center offers a wide variety of family fun for all ages, where kids can see stories unfold live on stage in front of them! The performances might be innovative adaptions of classic stories, or inventive new works.

Whatever you choose, you know it will be entertaining, and very colorful!

The Center also has a museum, with exhibits that each cover an amazing topic within the puppetry world. Of course, the master of puppets as we know is Jim Henson, so it makes sense there is a Jim Henson Collection that follows his prolific imagination chronologically, transporting all who visit into the world of this puppet master, and his film and television!

Fans of Jim Henson can learn how the iconic characters came to life, and even view puppets themselves such as Kermit the Frog! Ribbit! 

The museum also has a Global Collection that celebrates puppetry traditions from all over the world. You can enjoy the museum self-guided, or join one of the daily tours. Great if you have lots of questions!

Let's not forget that the Center For Puppetry Arts also has films that you can view, that of course - including puppets!

A fascinating and entertaining day out for the whole family in Atlanta!
