Took my daughter to the sculpture garden while visiting Springfield College. Cute little place nestled in with other the museums. My daughter loved seeing all the sculptures and relating to the books she has read! It was smaller than I expected. Definitely a cute place to stop and it's free!!!

Thanks for the review, Kristina! It's great to hear that your daughter was able to relate the sculptures to the books. We hope you'll come back to visit the Dr. Seuss Museum when it opens in June 2017. More

The museum itself was closed by the time we got there. The sculptures were awesome. It was fun to see the characters from our books. I wouldn't make a day out of it but if you're in the area def stopped. Next year 2017, the Seuss museum was advertise to open.

Pleasant spot to relax for awhile. If you are a Dr. Seuss fan stop here and take some pictures with the statues. This is in the courtyard behind the Springfield Library main branch and the various Springfield museums. If you are a museum goer you can spend the entire day here. There is a nice shady grassy area with some... More

We were in town for hall of fame enshrinement week and stopped in here to see the monument and go through the museums. This is centered in the courtyard of the springfield museums. Pretty cool to see as a fan of Dr. SEUSS.

The Dr.Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden is very small with amazing statue of the best work from Dr.Seuss. The Sculptures are really impressive. It's a free attraction, but in 2017 they will open a Dr. Seuss Museum.
