Jim Henson's Fantastic World

As part of the boy's birthday present I got two tickets for him and I to see the EMP/SFM, along with the current exhibit on display there, Jim Henson's Fantastic World. While EMP was less than satisfying (how can you have an exhibit on the history of American music and rock & roll without once mentioning Bob Dylan?), the Science Fiction Museum was cool for nerds like us, and the Muppet exhibit, while not huge, was very sweet. Some of the little-seen, early muppet shorts were hilarious, and it was impressive to see examples of the wide range of Jim Henson's creativity gathered together into one place. What an amazing man he was!

The show runs until August 16th.
