Image description: The National Museum of American History recently received a donation of more than 20 Jim Henson puppets and props from the Henson family.

The Museum’s conservation lab had to work on the puppets to get them ready for the donation ceremony. Some of the puppets are the originals and the materials used in their original creation were not meant to last for decades.
