Great Museum! Fascinating exhibits that change frequently. Took my 7 yr. old grandson and he was entertained, especially by the Simpson figures - they are huge! Recommend visits as exhibits rotate!

This museum is in downtown Springfield. It is free of charge. They had a special exhibit about the history of the Springfield Police. The regular exhibits featured exhibits on history, agriculture and the Simpsons of Springfield.

We love coming to the museum. It's great for our daughter and her friends, and fun for our whole family. I like that the display area is not huge, and you don't get overwhelmed or feel like you're missing something. And it is such a neat building. Just being inside is a learning experience. We'll definitely return.

The Springfield museum is housed in one of the oldest buildings in town. The exhibits change often downstairs and upstairs rarely changes. There is a tiny gift shop with carefully curated items. Worth a short visit and the admission is by donation.

The museum captures the history of the city. When we were there, the main exhibit covered the history of the Springfield police force. The permanent collection contains artifacts from the past. There is no admission fee. We placed cash in the donation box.

The best thing I can say about the museum is there is no admission charge. It is free but a small donation would be appropriate. It is very limited but still interesting enough to spend 30 minutes ir less.
