Puppets at The Platform
Join us each Friday at The Platform for storytime and a craft related to The Jim Henson Exhibition. Stay tuned for announcements regarding the theme for each week.
This activity is included with museum admission but requires timed entry reservations. Each person must reserve or buy a ticket in advance online or over the phone, including children and museum members. This allows us to safely welcome guests and keep within our guidelines for capacity of our venue.
