A nice place to spend an afternoon in Downtown Springfield

Nice grouping of museums in downtown Springfield. The motorcycle and aeronautic area was very interesting. The Science museum was cute for the kids

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.

This has four museums in one quadrangle. We went into the Museum of Science and the Museum of History. The Science Museum has a lot of animals and dinosaurs etc. I liked it. There is a gift shop, which had pretty high prices, but I suppose that's normal. There is a sculpture garden that has a lot of Dr. Seuss... More

Beautiful buildings and museums with just enough to peak your interest. They also host culture and cocktails which is a cute night out for someone who wants to see the museums all in one night.

ok... where do I start on the Springfield Museums? This place is old, dusty, not very interesting, decrepit, over priced and boring (actually, that could be said of much of Springfield). I took my daughter here thinking they might have some fun things seeing as Dr Seuss is from Springfield and they are also home to Milton Bradley games, the... More

Generally good and diverse displays. Went with my 3-year-old grand-daughter. Paid initial admission, then $5 per-person extra for the Curious George exhibit (which was just a small playground) plus an additional $3 per person for the planetarium plus extra change for other exhibits.

This group of museums are all around a courtyard. There's a local history museum, a science museum, two art museums. And there is also a Dr. Seuss sculpture garden. One price ($18) ($16 for AAA) gets you in to everything. We did all of this in three hours (we don't tend to read every exhibit description). Then we had lunch... More
