Center For Puppetry Arts

1404 Spring Street NW
Atlanta, GA 30309

Since 1978, the Center for Puppetry Arts has introduced millions of visitors to the wonder and art of puppetry, and has touched the lives of many through enchanting performances, curriculum-based workshops and the hands-on Worlds of Puppetry Museum. Patrons of all ages will enjoy the productions in the Family Series, and adults looking for a new kind of date night will appreciate the artistry and humor of the New Direction Series, which includes the The Ghastly Dreadfuls, a Halloween favorite. The Worlds of Puppetry Museum features the Jim Henson Collection Gallery, the definitive collection of more than 500 puppets, props, and costumes honoring his legacy with the largest collection of such items in the world! As well as the Global Collection Gallery, which shares the history and traditions of puppetry from around the world. The Dean DuBose Smith Special Exhibits Gallery features rotating exhibitions that delve more deeply into Henson and cultural puppetry-related themes.
