TWO KID-CENTRIC ATTRACTIONS REOPEN THEIR DOORS —AND YOUNG MINDS.
Keep your weekends free, parents, as two notable openings are taking place that the kids—and even the kid in you—will want to check out. After undergoing a multi million-dollar renovation and expansion, the Center for Puppetry Arts reopens Nov. 14. Notable among its new attractions is the Worlds of Puppetry Museum, which features the most comprehensive collection of Jim Henson memorabilia in the world. Donated by the Henson family, the assemblage includes 500-plus puppets, props and other artifacts from beloved shows, such as “Fraggle Rock,” “The Muppet Show” and “Sesame Street.”
Also set to reopen on Dec. 12 is the Children’s Museum of Atlanta. In addition to sprucing up the existing space, the museum is adding a 3,000-square-foot mezzanine and two new permanent exhibits where kids can conduct actual science experiments, climb through the layers of the Earth on an oversized rotating globe and more. – JB
