Muppets Come To Chicago!

I’ve always loved the Muppets! And now there here in Chicago at the Museum of Science and industry! Whats best is its just a short ride from the hotel and you can see Cookie Monster, Burt & Ernie.

 

Get a rare peek into the imagination of Jim Henson—a brilliant innovator and the creator of Kermit, Big Bird and other beloved characters. This exhibition features 100 original artworks, including drawings, cartoons and storyboards that demonstrate Henson’s talent as a story teller. The exhibit also documents Henson’s process of “visual thinking” through renderings, photographs, documents, puppets and film.

View the iconic puppets created by Henson, television and movie props, photographs of Henson and his collaborators at work, as well as original video productions and experimental films from Henson’s early career. Guests will also get an opportunity to express their own inventiveness through a series of fun and original hands-on activities.
