One of my favorite places to visit when I'm in New York is the Museum of the Moving Image which is Astoria, Queens. It's chock full of memories with items from tv and movies and also video games. Currently, the featured exhibit is The Jim Henson Exhibition which of course features the Muppets. This may now be a permanent part of the museum according to the museum's website.
Big Bird, Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog, they are all there.
The Jim Henson exhibit features so much related to the Muppets, including actual Muppets, but also scripts, drawing concepts of how they were created, videos of original programming and so much more.
It was really sweet to see people's reactions as they related with the characters. Everyone has a special memory regarding the Muppets and periods of their lives.
The museum of course has lots of memories regarding tv and movies, with props, scrips, collectibles, old movie and tv cameras, etc.
