During a holiday school break I took my 5 year old grandson to the museum. We had a wonderful experience. The Museum of Natural History was very exciting for him. The life size animals including the Dinosaurs were thrilling. We enjoyed looking at the live fish and reptiles. The Museum of Art had activities for him. He made a hand... More

I discovered two vintage Rolls Royce recently. They are awesome. Made in Springfield from 1921 to 1931 these antique cars deserve the attention of the connoisseur. My love of American-made Rolls goes back to 1961. This recent discovery is worth crowing about!

Unusual collection of art, history, and science museums. High quality exhibits with something for everyone. I loved the Dr. Seuss sculptures on the quadrangle green. You can walk under the arches by Horton and be in the sculpture!

I must say I was just expecting a bunch of Indian Motorcycles...shame on me - there was so, so much more. From the motorcycles, to the Gun collection, interactive kids areas and so much more. What a great value. As it turns out ...they do not charge for Veterans and their families which saved us about $50...either way it was... More

First, I have been super spoiled and lived a mile from Chicago's The Field Museum, so I lived by a fabulous one. This one, by comparison, is okay. Entertained the 9 year old grandson for a bit over an hour or so. It needs MAJOR updating. The temporary exhibit on POOP was the best thing there, after the Planetarium show... More

We only had a chance to visit the science museum, besides the Dr. Seuss Sculpture Gardens. The science museum is small and intimate, yet packed with interesting exhibits. I really enjoyed it. Not overrun by visitors, you can really spend some quality time with the exhibits.

I love the Springfield museums. We are residents of Springfield and because of this, we get free passes! It has taken us several trips to the museums to see all 5 of the buildings and we still have one more to go! There's a lot to see! The Dr Seuss Quadrangle is beautiful and lovely to walk through to get... More

Not only are adults amazed by the many inventions/ideas, etc. that came from Springfield Massachusetts but the kids will love the Dr. Seuss exhibit. It was well worth the visit!
