Located in Leland Mississippi and near Hwy 61 this little museum was a nice place to visit. This museum is dedicated to Jim Henson who was the creator of the muppets. It's a small two room building with some original puppets, photos and lots of written information about Jim Henson's life. The other room has lots of muppet memorabilia and... 更多
This small but well done museum is located in Leland, Mississippi right on the bank of Deer Creek where Henson played and explored as a boy. It was here that he got the inspiration for the world's most famous frog.

"Kermit the Frog here..." The woman at the car rental counter told us about this little gem, so since we were in the area we stopped by. It added to our fun Mississippi adventure. I wouldn't go out of my way, but if you're in the Greenville or Leland area, stop by and take a picture with Kermit!
A passionately run, small museum/exhibit. Filled with memorabilia and information about Jim Henson and his work. A 'real'Kermit is the main viewing attraction at the exhibit and this was donated by Jim Henson's wife. A short but sweet stop on the road.
