    WASHINGTON, DC (CBS) -- The Smithsonian is making room for more Muppets.

    The Smithsonian welcomed more than 20 of the most beloved puppets and props including Miss Piggy, Cookie Monster, Count von Count, and Bert and Ernie. They were donated to the Smithsonian by the family of Muppets creator Jim Henson on Tuesday (9/24), the anniversary of his birth (Sept. 24, 1936).

    They will join Kermit the Frog and Oscar the Grouch at the museum. Included are some of the first constructions of puppets that starred in The Muppet Show, Fraggle Rock, Sesame Street and "The Dark Crystal."

    Miss Piggy will go on display in March 2014.
