“Green eggs and ham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

All the museums in Springfield were together in one area. You can buy a combo ticket and get some great value out of it. The people who worked in the museums were very knowledgable. Time passed very quickly and we learned a lot. Thankyou.

“Cute”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Great for anyone that loves Dr. Seuss. It's a nice free place to visit. Only disappointed that there weren't more sculptures. Ended up visiting the museum next door. That was fun.

“It's free to take pictures here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

We stopped at this Sculpture Garden after visiting the Basketball Hall of Fame. This place is a great pit stop for photo taking so visit when it’s sunny. The only con that there aren’t too many sculptures here but this place is a wonderful gem in the middle of historic Springfield. Fun for kids and if you are an art history lover, there are dedicated museums that surround the garden. The best thing about this sculpture garden that it's free to see your favorite Dr. Seuss characters!

“Great Day trip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

I am a kid at heart so I loved the Dr. Seuss sculptures outside in the area between the museums. There's a kids museum, science museum, different types of museums and a T-Rex! A little of something for everyone. I believe I paid one fee for access to all of the museums and it wasn't expensive.

“Oh The Places You'll Go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

The garden is wonderful! Our grandchildren loved seeing their favorite characters; some of which were the same size as they were! And the maze where the Lorax is was fun to go thru!
