Nice to see storybook characters life sized

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.

We stopped at the garden on our way out of Springfield. We have a teacher in the family, so it was a must see before leaving. There were about a dozen or so Dr. Seuss sculptures throughout the garden, with several grouped together on one end anchored by the Horton elephant. We snapped several pics then headed up the road.... More

This garden and park is part of the Springfield Museum complex. Dr. Seuss was born and raised in Springfield and this garden has sculptures of him and creatures from his books. Great for children.

Took my 15 year old daughter here while visiting the area. Initially she balked at going, but after seeing the sculptures was impressed. The park itself was hard to find. We had to walk around the whole block before we found the actual entrance to it since its tucked inbetween buildings. It's small with only about 8 or so sculptures... More
