Jim Henson: Wonders from His Workshop is an exhibit at Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta. It focuses on the technology that was developed for Fraggle Rock, Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas, Labyrinth and other Henson productions.

The exhibit opened on September 16, 2008, and was originally to run until September 13, 2009 before shifting into long-term display.

The items on display are on loan from the Henson Family Collection, courtesy of the Jim Henson Legacy.

The exhibit is located in the atrium. Guests are greeted by Big Bird as they enter, who stands next to The Southern Colonel. The Fraggle Rock exhibit includes a collection of Doozers and various cars and Doozer stick constructions, as well as the miniature versions of the Fraggles. Full versions of Mokey and Red are included with props from the series.

A recreation of the The Muppet Workshop is featured, with many illustrations of past productions reproduced with company photographs, fabric samples and other matierials. Also included are Emmet Otter and Alice Otter on the rowboat.

The Labyrinth section of displays includes a great number of characters from the film including Sir Didymus, The Four Guards, Left Door Knocker and a recreation of the wall of hands.
