AmericaJR’s Gloria and Jerome Rzucidlo recently visited The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation to check out the new “The Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited.” 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.

The Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited is free for members or included with museum admission. For more info, go to
