This is not one museum, but a collection of 4 different in 5 building on a single campus. Offerings from European masters, to natural history to Rolls Royces and Indian Motorcycles, which were produced in Springfield. The fine arts museum is one of the most beautifully designed and curated that I have visited.

I've done the Springfield Museums with my 5 year old daughter on 2 occasions thus far and she has loved it each time, especially the Science museum and some of the special exhibits like the Gingerbread Houses during Christmas. I think that some of the Arts she may enjoy as she gets older so there are years more worth of... More

As a Springfield native, I have grown up enjoying this group of museums. I think they have only gotten better. Enjoy History, Art, Science, and local history for all ages--with the library and archives for further research! The Dr. Seuss sculpture garden keeps the kids and adults entertained and rejuvenated. After taking it all in, I enjoy a snack and... More

Always a great time and springfield residents get in free. Ginger bread exhibit and dinosaur exhibit is always a hit with the kids. Always activities in the numerous rooms and buildings

First of all, I must share that I grew up in the west and am a good shot! I made up my mind years ago, that IF I TRULY feel my life and safety are threatened, I will use my gun to save myself! Anyway, that being said, on our recent trip "back east" we added a stop at the... More

This place consists of several buildings plus some Dr. Seuss sculptures outside. There is lots to see and some very good temporary exhibitions which are always changing. Lots of local history but it is done in a way that is interesting to anyone even if you are not familiar with the event. When we were there, there were motorcycles on... More

I honestly think this is the best museum this whole area has. There stuff for everyone and the history covers more than just the city of Springfield. The Rolls Royce in this museum are beautiful very rare. There a lot of history on manufacturing as Springfield was consider to be the manufacturing center of New England.
