    It looks closed due to construction of the new museum wing, but it isn't. Guyi-Guyi: the Other Ugly Duckling is a lovely and sweet! Go see it, now, while it is playing.

    Ask for your puppet kit to go on the way out; you can avoid a crowd of school kids if you go on a weekday.

    Their puppetry rendition of Rudolph is a must. Like the Burl Ives classic. Go to the first show as it gets much crowded later. Make puppets after upstairs. Get tickets online early. It sells out!

    Don't miss the Create a Puppet workshop after every show. It's included in your ticket and kids love it-and gives them a puppet to relive the show at home.
