Nice little Café on the grounds to grab a bite while visiting the 4 museums. Great way to spend a day. Got lucky & found a Groupon & saved some cash!

We who live in this area tend to take The Quadrangle for granted. It is just a wonderful place to visit yourself or with family, especially young children. The Art Museum is beautiful with new exhibits coming and going all the time. The newest addition, the Museum of Springfield History is filled with wonderful nostalgia. The is now an excellent...

Visited the Springfield Museums of Science and Fine Arts with my daughter's class Field Trip today; would recommend to adults and families. Plan to visit both of these if you visit the museums and enjoy the Dr. Seuss sculpture garden. Highlights of our visit were the Impressionist Room inside the Fine Arts Museum and the "Animal Secrets" Exhibit inside the... More

My daughter and I stopped here while in town to visit colleges. This is a great little museum and their outside Dr Seuss garden is fantastic. Some beautiful sculptures that catch the flavor and whimsy of Ted Geisel's creations. There was a special exhibit about leather jackets through time which was very informative and interesting. Highly recommend!

Our visits there have been great, for the most part. We've gone to almost every museum at the complex and there's so much variety. We've hit Springfield Jewery and Tornado special exhibits but the Indian motorcycles are always fun to see. The Dr. Seuss Sculpture Garden is surprisingly fun. I like Horton! The Lorax looks grumpy and condescending, in my... More

We met our children and grandchildren(from Boston area). We did not really know what to expect. As soon as the kids arrived, they saw the statues of the Dr Seuss characters and were off and running. It was uphill from there. They were interested in the dinosours, the science exhibits, the aquarium, the animals and the Hasbro toy exhibits. We... More

The Springfield Museums are made up of two art, one science and one history museum. One admission price gets you into all four places. The history museum does a pleasant job of covering Springfield's history. Yet it doesn't delve much into what might be considered controversial events, such as "Hay's Rebellion." The science museum is a good place to give... More

Years ago I visited a quirky little museum run by Esta Manthos which honored the Indian Motocycle which was manufactured in Springfield. And yes, that is how Indian spelled "motorcycle". Indian is a famous brand that lead, competed with, beat and rivaled Harley until Indian went under by 1953/55. Several resurrections have been done and the current one seems to... More

This area is the only place that is nice in this part of Springfield. It's unfortunate, that this city is in such bad shape. They need a casino soon- or this city will turn into Detroit, MI

We enjoyed the art museum, the autos, fire equipment, police vehicles, the motorcycles. We had the impression the dinosaur exhibit had animatronics. We were disappointed that it did not. Also, there were few dinosaurs to be found. Still, we spent an enjoyable afternoon. The Outdoor Dr. Seuss exhibit was delightful!
