See a Vintage Kermit Puppet When the Museum of the Moving Image Reopens

As folks get their COVID-19 vaccines, public spaces across the US are starting to reopen. That includes one of the best spaces for fans of movies, TV, video games, and Muppets — the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, New York.

MOMI is reopening this weekend, which means so is the Jim Henson Exhibition. To mark the occasion, the museum is adding an exciting artifact — the second Kermit the Frog puppet ever built! It was built by Jim Henson and Don Sahlin in 1963, and although it looks a lot like Kermit, he’s not quite a frog yet. They announced the addition in a recent tweet.

The museum is also screening The Muppet Movie on May 1 (TOMORROW!) and May 7. That’s a pretty good movie. I recommend it.

For more information on all of the above, see the Museum of the Moving Image website!
