Brought out 8 year old daughter to check out the sculptures of some cool Dr. Seuss characters and of Dr. Seuss himself. It was raining but was definitely still worth the visit. Our daughter enjoyed having her picture taken with the sculptures.

Our own children are all grown-up by now, but we still feel the curious part of our kids! The outdoor sculptures are very fascinatingly interesting. We feel that the spirit of "feel-good" is indeed alive and well in this park sculpture, bigger- than- life size!

Very nice park celebrating the amazing work of Dr. Seuss (Theodore Geisel). We visited on a chilly, but sunny, March day and found this to be a great experience. I'm sure on warm days during Spring, Summer, and Fall the park is even more enjoyable.

This is only a small garden but if you are in the area you have to visit. There are only a few statues but some of them are quite big and they are really well done. When we were there there was also a great structure made out of woven sticks that you could walk through and the kids loved... More

Even though I had to visit in the middle of a snowstorm, it was SUCH fun and I really enjoyed taking photos with the statues. Would love to see it in the warm weather and visit the surrounding museums.

December is not the best time to visit an outdoor attraction in Massachusetts, but even so, there were plenty of children and adults at this trove of sculptures that include all sorts of large and smaller characters from the Dr. Seuss canon. And despite cold temperatures, everyone was smiling and aglow at the artwork...including a striking Grinch as well as... More

Associated with the Springfield Museums. Sculptures are fun and represent well the whimsy of Ted Geisel's creations.

We visited the sculpture and museum shortly after we moved to the Northeast 5 years ago. It was a great experience to see the history of a man who dedicated his love to entertaining children and adults alike. Well worth the time to visit.

Horton, the Lorax, the Grinch, the Cat in the Hat, they are all here in large sculptures. It is a quick destination on it's own, but combined with the museums, which is an integral part of, it is wonderful. There is a large display of the word of "The Places You Will Go" which sets the tone for the experience.... More
