Muppets Going to a NY Museum

By May 24, 2013

Follow me on:

The Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, New York, is the lucky recipient of a number of well-loved Muppets characters and historical items. Over 400 items are being donated by Jim Henson's family and will be displayed in a new, 2,200 square-foot gallery.

Among the 400 items are 200 puppets (which include Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Bert and Ernie, and Elmo), costumes, behind-the-scenes footage, and props from some of Henson's most memorable works.

The exhibit is expected to officially open near the end of 2014.
