First of all, I must share that I grew up in the west and am a good shot! I made up my mind years ago, that IF I TRULY feel my life and safety are threatened, I will use my gun to save myself! Anyway, that being said, on our recent trip "back east" we added a stop at the... More

This place consists of several buildings plus some Dr. Seuss sculptures outside. There is lots to see and some very good temporary exhibitions which are always changing. Lots of local history but it is done in a way that is interesting to anyone even if you are not familiar with the event. When we were there, there were motorcycles on... More

There are four museums in what’s called the quadrangle, but I only visited the Science Museum, which was very basic and not particularly modern. There were certainly some interesting things to see, but for the most part, a quick walk through seemed sufficient. If you’re in town for another reason and have some time to kill, you could do worse,... More

We were fortunate to be in the museums when there were multiple activities. The Science museum is nice and informative. The Dr Seuss sculpture park is very small, but nice. Food selection is not big (we found only 1 place that serves mainly sandwiches). The entire place has a very sleepy state of mind which is a shame, because i... More

Situated on a campus with the Dr. Seuss Memorial Sculpture Garden in the middle, the Springfield Museums are a great destination. 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
