Jim Henson Exhibition opening in Dearborn in early June explores 'Muppets' founder's lasting legacy

Thirty years after his death, the magic of Jim Henson continues to captivate fans and now a traveling exhibition of the famed puppeteer's work is headed to The Henry Ford in Dearborn.

On June 5, "The Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited" will debut, featuring 20 puppets, character sketches, storyboards, scripts, pictures, costumes, behind-the-scenes footage and film and television clips. The exhibition, which runs through Sept. 6, will also include interactive experiences that will allow visitors to try their own hand at puppeteering on camera and designing a puppet character.
