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.

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!

The museums individually are small but all are worth visiting. This is a good way to kill an afternoon or part of a day if looking for something different.

There is so much to see in architecturally beautiful buildings. There's museums that appeal to all ages. Once you're done perusing the museums, you can't miss taking the time to see the Dr. Seuss garden.

Pitstop here for an hour or two, to enjoy each museums but entrance fee is $18/adult. Consider as a donation :) Warning : Don't expect too much and don't compare against those big museums in DC.
