Artisans worked to recreate the buildings and sets from Sesame Street, which stand alongside the original Hooper's Store and Fix-it Shop storefronts (courtesy of the Smithsonian). The life-size building fronts are accompanied by several new structures including a cobblestone bridge, playground, and several activity centers.
Life-size Muppet photo puppets fill the street set so visitors can experience Sesame Street first hand. The exhibit launched in 1997 and remains a main part of the museum to this day. The museum also prepared a smaller traveling exhibit.
