If you love Dr. Seuss, you will love this little statue park. It was great to see the reaction of the kids on a beautiful summer day.

Peaceful, delightful sculptures. Creative right in the heart of Springfield. Easy to locate and a nice little shop right off the quad.

The sculpture garden is really part of the museum complex, and all of it is really worth a visit. As to the garden, you really get a feel for Dr. Seuss and his very warm and supportive message to kids. Highly recommend a visit.

This memorial is around the corner from where Dr. Seuss grew up. It denotes him and some of his characters in greater than life size sculptures. It located right in the middle of the quadrangle, where you have Springfield Public Library, a fine arts museum, a natural history museum, and, of course, the Dr. Seuss museum.

Every time I approach this park, I smile. I adore these massive sculptures, lovingly displayed by Dr Seuss' hometown. Take a photo with Horton, Thing 1&2, or the Lorax. Or just sit among the beautiful sculptures and remember your youth. I can't wait for the Seuss Museum to open in 2017.

With a young child familiar with Dr. Seuss, this certainly was a nice stop on the way home from Boston. However, Springfield, MA looks how people describe Detroit, MI. There are several museums surrounding the courtyard with the sculptures, but after our vacation in Boston there was no time. However, next year, 2017, another "museum" will be opening, "the Amazing... More

Such a cute little garden that is right in the middle of the museums. There is no cost to visit the statues.and they are really cute. It was a fun short diversion from driving, good way to stretch legs and just visit something unique. Would recommend to anyone. It looks like they have future plans for a Dr. Seuss exhibit... More

This is definitely worth trip to see, they do have a small museum in the works. Dr Seuss is represented well within the Statues.
