The Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited explores Jim Henson’s groundbreaking work for film and television and his transformative impact on popular culture.  This comprehensive exhibition reveals how Henson and his team of builders, performers, and writers brought to life the enduringly popular worlds of The Muppet Show, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and much more.  The exhibition features a broad range of artifacts related to Henson’s unparalleled career, including more than 20 puppets, character sketches, storyboards, scripts, photographs, film and television clips, behind-the-scenes footage, iconic costumes, and interactive experiences that allow visitors to try their hand at puppeteering on camera and designing a puppet.


The Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited is a traveling exhibition from Museum of the Moving Image and toured internationally by Flying Fish.

“During June 1–September 2, 2018, Museum admissions was more than double the admissions figure of the same time period in 2017. The exhibition succeeded at bringing far more first-time or infrequent Skirball visitors through our doors, introducing them to the wide range of programming we offer throughout the year.”
