Center for Puppetry Arts

The Center for Puppetry Arts is a unique cultural treasure - a magical place where children and adults are educated, enlightened and entertained. Since 1978, the Center 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 Museum, as well as Distance Learning and Outreach Programs.

The Center, located in Midtown Atlanta, Georgia, was founded in 1978 by Vincent Anthony. It is the nation’s largest organization dedicated to the art form of puppetry. The Center focuses on three areas: performance, education and museum. The theater present Family Series shows year-round, as well as a number of performances for adult audiences. The museum has the largest collection of Jim Henson puppets and artifacts anywhere in the world; a global collection outlining puppetry traditions from around the world; and a rotating special exhibit focusing on such topics as Labyrinth and India. The Education Department provides workshops, puppet-building activities and community outreach, and the award-winning Distance Learning program presents virtual workshop and puppet shows.

The Center for Puppetry Arts' mission is to inspire imagination, education and community through the global art of puppetry.
