  • We went for the first time today. The Beauty and the beast show was so we'll put together. We really enjoyed the museum. Especially the Jim Henson section with all of my childhood faves from sesame Street to labyrinth. The Dark Crystal special exhibit was so interesting as well as the chance to build your own puppet.
  • We LOVED it! Kid friendly, entertaining, clean and overall a fantastic experience! We saw the farm show and it exceeded my expectations completely. My 10 month old and my 2 year old were so entertained the entire time. We will definitely be back!
