Wow this is awesome!
So does that mean the entire collection as we see it in the pictures will not be on display, only several of them?The museum will place Miss Piggy on view within the American Stories exhibition in March 2014. In addition, several of the puppets from the Jim Henson Collection—including the original Kermit, not yet a frog, and Cookie Monster—will go on view in November in a display case that will include marionettes, hand puppets and ventriloquist figures.
