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

A relatively affordable day out spent with my daughters and their grandmother. The park is a really wonderful tribute to Dr. Seuss. It is not super commercial as are some other museums I have been to, however they have a very nice museum shop with thoughtfully chosen merchandise for both children and adults. We didn't get to the history or... More

What fun a collection of statues dedicated to Dr. Seuss. And as for a memorial, I think I learned and expanded my use of the English language and my rhyming capabilities are a result of these wonderful books and their prose. Make me want to go out and have some green eggs and ham to celebrate! Horton is wonderful and... More

It's a gorgeous garden as Dr Suess lived on Matton Street & than I believe on Mulberry Street. Matton Street is a gorgeous historical place with what appears as gas lamps & brick sidewalks it's close to the gardens which are on Federal Street another historical area of Sprngfield.

Very close to I-91, we enjoyed our seeing the vine huts and the sculptures that depicted Ted Geisel's wonderful writings. My nine year old, one of his many fans had fun.

Nestled in the Quadrangle between the public library and museums are many statues of Dr. Seuss's most memorable characters. They are life like and if you grew up reading his stories this is a must see. It is small and the parking is not great but it is free and and the kids and grown ups really like it. While... More

The kids really enjoyed getting their pictures taken with the sculptures. I really liked that it is all fenced in so it was safe to just let them run. Very well done!
