I went for the Jim Henson exhibit and seeing so many of the Muppets was fantastic. There was so much info about Henson's early career as well.

Loved this hidden gem! The Jim Henson exhibit was fantastic. Saw and learned so much about him and the muppets. Lots of interesting other exhibits. So glad we found this. Well worth the price and the trip.

If you're a film enthusiast like I am, this place is not to be missed. Film fans- worth a trip to New York for this alone. I used to take my students here on field trips when I lived in the city years ago- it's...More

We visited here on the free admission day and we loved it. We had lots of fun playing with the machines: dubbing scenes, adding sound FX, making stop motion movies... I would recommend it to anyone that likes cinema (but you have to get loose...More
