Two art museums, a science museum and the Museum of Springfield History comprise the offerings. The art collection is quite good for a museum this size. It includes Dutch and Flemish works, French Impressionists (including works by Monet, Degas,... More

The Dr. Seuss sculpture garden is in secure garden, the kids can let out steam running around. They loved to discover the different favorite figures. We started inside with the Science... More

Loved the art museum, even if a bit smaller than the larger cities' like Boston, Worcester and The Clark in N. Adams. Nice collection of Currier & Ives and early American. We did not pay the extra $5 for the Impressionist exhibit so I cannot comment on that. The history museum was really cool. Automobiles and games. We did not... More

The Springfield Museums are a hidden treasure. They have a wonderful variety of museums that offer adults and children a great experience. The science museum is my favorite, it's also great for children.
