    I heard BRIEFLY on the radio that in New York City is going to have an All-Muppet Museum. Not the exibit at the Moving Picture Museum. Anybody know more about this or when it is going to open??? Thanks. Bob

    I just Googled NY Muppet museum and every link that came up is related to the upcoming permanent Henson gallery they're installing at the Museum of the Moving Image. So perhaps the radio program you were listening to got their facts muddled?

    I WISH! I live on Long Island, and that would be a dream come true, but as far as I know, haven't heard anything.

    A PERMANENT Henson gallery at the Museum of the Moving Image? I went there two years ago to see Jim Henson's Fantastic World, the traveling Muppet exhibit, and it was a really cool museum. They had some cool movie props, like the Tyrell building from Blade Runner and Freddy Krueger's sweater from Nightmare on Elm Street 5. Sounds like a great place for a permanent Henson exhibit.

    Indeed Scooter, I went to see the exhibit at well the day Frank Oz was giving a Q&A/interview, the museum itself is a lot of fun, and the exhibits even the non Muppet ones are amazing, but yes, the Henson exhibit went so well, they are making a permanent exhibit there.

    Now I'm bummed out... I was all uber-excited about the possibility of a Muppet Museum... oh well.

    But on that subject, why can't we have an all-Muppet Museum? Or a Henson Museum in general? Walt Disney has a museum, Charles Schulz has a museum, why can't Jim have one?

    Update: It's coming in May as a travelling exhibit and then it'll come to MoMI as a permanent one. YES!
