Definitely worth a visit if your passing by on the turnpike and fancy a break. Not much else to Springfield but we did enjoy the Dr Seuss garden, it's in a nice setting, the surrounding buildings etc compliment the garden.

What child didn't love Dr Suess? Imagine if you had been able to meet the Cat in the Hat or walk among Horton, Things 1 and 2, Sam I am. Imagine having your photo taken on a chair inside of a giant Dr Suess book. And who was this Dr Suess? A statue will show you that as well. I... More

The Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden is the least that could have been done for the great children's author. This is not worth stopping to see unless you are within a mile of the location.

Is anyone not a Dr. Seuss fan? Oh you poor Grinch there in the corner, I'm sorry your parents did not provide you with Dr. Seuss books in your formative years. But even you can enjoy this place. This sculpture garden is probably more fun if you go with children. If you don't have any of your own, borrow a... More

These are very well done sculptures. You are free to wander and spend as much time as you like. It's a nice tribute to a Springfield native and well worth taking time to visit. There could be a little more written description of his life and books. Seems as though they are counting on you knowing a little more than... More

My ex is a big Dr. Seuss fan and we drove by here on our way home from Boston. Cute. Cool sculptures and a nice place to take a quick picture. Enjoy!

The Dr. Seuss sculpture garden is a quick easy stop. I am not sure if this would be a destination stop. It is worth visiting if you are in the area though. I would especially recommend this for Dr. Seuss fans. I think you are actually expected to pay to visit. Almost nobody does. Great photo place for families.
