This is a great treat for kids of all ages. The sculptures are excellent and they did a nice job with all of them in an artistic way coupled with the museum in front.

Hi Linda! Wow, thanks! We think you captured it perfectly. As the sculptures are life-sized it definitely feels like you have walked into your favorite Dr. Seuss book. The addition of the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum last year further brings the experience alive....More

As the newly restored, 1926 Springfield Union Station is only 0.4 mile from the Dr. Suess Sculpture Museum, you can take a free self-guided tour of the Station. Better yet, travel to the Station by bus (Greyhound, Peter Pan or PVTA) or rail (CTrail or...More

Hi Hayley! We are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the Blake House Cafe. Would you be able to elaborate on how we could "spruce" things up? Thanks!

The sculpture garden is a part of Springfield Museums. Dr. Seuss house is on the quadrangle. Only caution, signs say not to sit on the sculptures, they are tempting! The garden is bronze so in the summer could burn.More
