The exhibit, named Folding Paper, opened on Friday and features artwork by 40 artists from around the world.
Museum workers said they've already seen a lot of people checking out the exhibit.
Saturday afternoon, dozens of people took part in a workshop, where they learned to make their own origami.
"We're all enjoying it because it's not just the process and the end result of the accomplishment of holding something creative, but it's folding together that really makes it a magical experience," said Origami Artist, Ruthanne Bessman.
The workshop ended Saturday afternoon, but the exhibit is on display through April. Admission to the Woodson Art Museum is always free.
