The Noguchi Museum 
The Noguchi Museum was founded and designed by internationally renowned American artist Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988), for the display of what he considered to be representative examples of his life’s work. As a whole, the museum provides an intimate, reflective space in which to experience Noguchi’s sculpture and design, fulfilling a vision that the artist deemed essential to his life’s work. The ground-floor galleries and garden contain a permanent presentation of work curated and installed by the artist, selected from his own collection. Guests receive a guided tour.

Museum of the Moving Image
The Jim Henson Exhibition features a broad range of objects from throughout his remarkable career. It reveals how Henson and his team of builders, performers, and writers brought to life the enduringly popular worlds of The Muppet Show, the Muppet movies, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal, and Labyrinth. The nearly 300 objects include puppets, character sketches, storyboards, scripts, photographs, and costumes. Many of the objects featured in The Jim Henson Exhibition are drawn from a major donation by Jim Henson’s family to the Museum’s permanent collection. Guests receive a VIP introduction regarding the acquisition of this collection.

The cost includes transportation, admission, tours, and lunch at Sanfords Restaurant.
