Great place to visit with kids, but fun for the adults who were raised on Fox in Sox, Yertle the Turtle, and Green Eggs and Ham. It's all outdoors and free, and inspires kids to read and use their imagination.

A nice set of sculptures to honor Dr. Seuss. The garden is free to access and there is plenty of parking around the cluster of museums. A nice photo op with the kids and a way to revisit the classic stories.

I was looking forward to coming here as I absolutely love Dr.Seuss for his creative mind. When we got here there were children all over every statue like it was a jungle gym, even though there are signs ALL OVER the place stating to stay off them and do not climb them. We watched as "parents" brought their kids here... More

Lovely sculpture garden of favorite Dr. Seuss characters. Very picturesque, lovely quad, great architecture, fun museums - not overwhelming or crowded! Fun for kids! There's a (medium-big) T-Rex inside & Indian Motorcycle exhibit! Hidden gem in Springfield!

This is a great place for youngsters who love Dr. Seuss. There are various sculptures they can climb on, and frequently pictures are taken by parents and grandparents. It is partially tree shaded, so comfortable for the adults while watching the children enjoy the garden. It is also a great place for the little ones to let off steam after... More

Even if its not a lot of sculpture, they are really nice. The details are like coming out of the books and very detailed. The biggest group has a lot of characters, and hidden surprises, you just keep finding more and more amazing things. The turtles were really nice a bit further away. My kids loved the place (2 and...

This is just a fun FREE park nestled behind the library and between two museums we plan to explore during the winter months. We stumbled upon an 'early childhood education' type event where the new Dr. Seuss book was read to a gathering of children. Once the books were read and songs were sung, we walked around to see the... More
