Very interesting and fun. I took my nieces to see it while we visited the springfield museums. They had a great time and were able to put stories to characters.

A great time. In middle of town. Many "life sized" statues of famous characters. Full sized Who house that you can walk into.

This is such an awesome park! The scuptures are very impressive. I loved walking around, seeing, and of course taking pictures with all the sculptures. A MUST stop if you're in Springfield!

This garden was about 4 blocks away from our hotel and was an easy walk away. The time of day we were there 4:00, there weren't many other people around - maybe 2 -4 people.

My daughter and I took the boys she babysits and we had such a wonderful time. The museum was just the right size for these active boys and was finished by being outside in the sculpture garden.

Excellent Display of Sculpture on grounds - you learn everything of Dr. Seuss. The shop was loaded with items for sale of Dr. Seuss products.

Worth a trip if you have a Dr. Seuss fan. Makes for great pictures! Don't miss the Yertle the Turtle exhibit--it's separate from the others, but not far away.

This is a small park/sculpture garden behind the beautiful library building in downtown Springfield. Easy walk from the convention center or Sheraton & Marriott. When you get to the library you can go thru it and out the back door or there is a stone pathway on the left prior to getting to the library steps. I walked all the... More

If yo have kids or are a Dr. Seuss fan, it's a cool stop. It took us 10-20 minutes, but it was around 7:00 at night. The area looked a little run down but never felt unsafe. Well worth the stop.
