    I remember going here as a kid and seeing the Velveteen Rabbit (one of my favorite stories!) They offer classes and have a museum and switch up the productions every month. Perfect for kids!

    The Center for Puppetry Arts is mainly devoted to all things related to puppets. Not surprisingly, many kids go here for school field trips. However, even if you're not a kid, they actually do show interesting puppet shows and is worth checking out.

    This is a great museum/activity for the young and old! There's interactive exhibits with all kinds of puppets from all over the world, and of course performances. There's a huge muppets/ Jim Henson exhibit. Plus, on Thursdays the museum is free. Score!

    Sadly, I did not get to see a show here while in the area (all sold out). However, I made it to the museum. It is free on Thursdays from 1-3. I had it nearly all to myself which was at times nice and at other times a little creepy (but that's just me). The Jim Henson exhibit was really awesome. I never really took time to appreciate how talented, prolific, and influential he was. I also enjoyed their main exhibit, though the animatronic puppets you can play with don't work very well. I'd say it's worth a visit, especially if you go when it's free.

    Puppets aren't just for kids, y'all! In addition to performances, there are multiple Museum Exhibitions and various educational programs and special events. Show up on a Thursday afternoon between 1-3 and you can get into the Museum for free (though it's also often included when you go to a show, which are generally in the mornings/afternoons).
