If you are a seuss fan then visiting this is fun. Even better is that it is free. That being said you get what you pay for. What this is is a small garden with some seuss sculptures. If you passing thru or visiting a museum then check it out. If not its not worth a visit.

Very nice place to check out while at the Springfield museums. It looks like on cooler days you can actually take pictures with the famous Dr Seuss bronze? Sculptures. You can walk through the garden in five minutes or spend some time checking them out.

Very cute little area! The sculptures are a lot of fun and there is some nice green space to relax or let the kids run around. You can make it a super short visit if you just want a quick photo op. We lucked out and found some free parking right on the street in the middle of the week.

How can you not be in the area and miss the sculptures. Everyone of these brought back memories and stories from everyone about their first encounter with Suess,. It is very well laid out and the sculpting and casting captures the details. We are looking forward to the museum. Also, Mulberry street is only a few blocks from there, so... More

Such a lovely park, we loved the benches where you could just sit and enjoy the sculptures. The staff in the gift shop were very helpful and friendly.

I thought it would be fun for my 12 and 9 year old boys to see the sculpture garden so we took a walk to it from our hotel. It was kept beautiful but I was disappointed the sculptures were roped off. My one son is visually impaired and I would have liked it if he could see the sculptures... More

Hi RLP987, Thank you for visiting our Sculpture Garden. Unfortunately, due to the heat this summer, we've had to rope off the sculpture in order to prevent injury; the metal gets very hot and can dangerous on bare skin. If you do visit again and the sculptures are still roped off, please make your way into our Security office and... More

They are putting together a special museum for Dr Seuss. This review is only for the garden as presented on Aug 2016. It was nice, easy to walk. Lots of pokestops! The museums right there weren't as good as I had hoped though.

Only a couple of sculptures in the park. The photos you see are ALL of the sculptures that are there. We spend about 5 minutes there, good thing it was free. Nice that they do have a tribute to him.
