Jim Henson Exhibition Imagination Unlimited


Join us for an exclusive, members-only preview of The Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited at Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation. Member reservations are required for a safe and enjoyable experience. 

Throughout a singular career spanning four decades, Jim Henson created iconic puppet characters and stories for film and television that left an indelible mark on popular culture. With his gently subversive humor, restless curiosity and innovative approach to puppetry, Henson built the Muppets into an enduring international brand, contributed beloved puppet characters to Sesame Street, and made movies that applied his vivid imagination to stories for the big screen. This exhibition explores Henson’s unique contributions to the moving image and how he and a talented team of designers, performers and writers created an unparalleled body of work that continues to delight and inspire people of all ages.

This dynamic experience explores Jim Henson’s groundbreaking work for film and television and his transformative impact on culture.


In addition to our in-person preview, members are invited to join us for a special virtual program featuring the exhibit. Invitations to register will be emailed to members.
