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!

This is a small sculpture garden located in the Quadrangle. Kids will enjoy seeing their favorite Seuss characters.

I'm not rating the sculpture garden. It is nicely done. On Mulberry Street (yes, THE Mulberry Street) was Theodore Geisel's home. It is no longer there. Mulberry Street still exists. I will never forgive what some lunatics did not have the foresight to value. Boo Springfield.

The Dr. Seuss Memorial Garden is great for Dr. Seuss fans of any age! You can stand next to the Lorax, the Grinch, Horton, and even look over Dr. Seuss' shoulder while he lounges at his desk. The Garden is small and it can be a quick visit, so you may want to check out the museums around the Garden... More

A lovely garden square in the midst of the library and museums of Springfield. Much of the city is pretty unattractive, so this whimsical garden was especially endearing. I've always loved Dr. Seuss, and these sculptures of various of his characters was fun company on a quiet afternoon.

Located on a quad between museum buildings, the sculpture garden is free to visit. There are several sculptures featuring The Cat in the Hat, Horton, Sally & Conrad, Grinch, and popular Dr. Seuss characters. Do not climb on the statues, per the signs posted. Dr. Seuss merchandise can be found in the main building's lower level gift shop. Parking is... More

It was fun to wander about the sculptures and take pictures of them. Had to wait very frequently for families with kids to do their thing before I snapped my photos. Have young kids and going to be in Springfield. Definitely take them to this. I think its free also which is always helpful.

We really enjoyed the sculpture garden in the Quadrangle. Dr. Seuss was one of my favorite authors and the city does him justice. The public library is a classic and the museums are outstanding as well. We stopped by for two days for some genealogical research in the museum (the location for the local history archives). The museum is very... More
