The museums were a lovely surprise on a cold February day. The Dr Seuss museum does not reopen until the summer. The sculptures are very good and would delight Dr. Seuss lovers of all ages.

Loved Seuss as a Kid and this fun a hoot to see some of the characters 'life size'. Perfect for a short relaxing break to a day or kill time. Good photo op too!

Great place for both the young and old. Also, I think it's fantastic that they don't charge the entrance fee if you are a Springfield resident!

Although the Dr. Seuss museum isn't open yet, the sculpture garden is worth a quick visit. The gift shop has a nice selection of Dr. Seuss books and t-shirts.

The memorial isn't huge but it is beautiful. It's fun for the kids and I believe every kid should know who Dr. Suess is!!

With the recent addition of the Dr. Museum to the Springfield Quadrangle the Sculpture Garden proves to be the perfect entrance into the wild and wonderfully inspiring world of Suess!

This is an oppurtunity to bring your children and your granchildren and be right up next to the characters you have read to them. Have a picture taken beside them and get to touch, yes get to touch them. I do love green eggs and ham!

A new renovation promises to have an awesome museum soon, but so far just the sculpture garden was underwhelming. However, we bought a ticket for the science museum and art museum that share the space with the Dr. Suess sculpture garden. The science museum was TERRIFIC. Lots of animal exhibits, the kids were fascinated.
