There were several clever sculptures that were just like the creatures in the Dr. Seuss books I used to read to grandchildren! There was also the Lorax' house on the grounds, a perfect place for children to run, hide, and dart around the corners.

This is a great little area. We were lucky enough to stumble across a little art fair and a classic car show. The park itself is worth a visit for young or old

For a Dr. Suess lover I had a good time. It was a nice stop to get out and stretch my legs. Little hard to find at first, but look for the museum on the corner and it is tucked away in the garden. It was a neat little stop that you could take 5 minutes or an hour depending... More

If you love Seuss you will surely enjoy the sculpture garden. I still wan to have a photo session with all the grandchildren there. It is about an hour visit and best if you are familiar with the stories. Wonderful

The garden was fun to see but there wasn't anything to do there. So only plan a brief stop, especially with children.

Good for kids and nostalgic adults. Bronze sculptures in the courtyard of the museum. Maybe ten or so sculptures in all. Kids there seemed to be having fun. Pleasant place for spending part of an afternoon.

The teacher & child in me loved being there among my favorite Seuss characters in sculpture! It's included in the price of the museum passes.

All of the Dr. Seuss are displayed outside in bigger than life size in a pretty and safe environment in the Museum Quadrangle in downtown Springfield

We went to visit this exhibit withy granddaughter and she enjoyed it. There are 7 - 8 sculptures that are part of a little park area and a stick house of the lorax. It is definitely something to be seen and worth it if you are in Springfield.

The Dr. Seuss Memorial Garden is located in a courtyard within the confines of the Springfield Museum of Natural History. There is no admission charged for entry and the garden is well worth seeing if you are passing through Springfield. The garden is easily accessible from I-91 (if you have a map or GPS) and is definitely worth a 45... More
