I have been to the Springfield Museums more than once. There are several buildings you can walk through and they do not take long (nice if you have little ones). Different special exhibits each time you go. This time we went for the Gingerbread Exhibit (theme was Harry Potter). And another building had Ninja Turtle Exhibit.

Historically we have come to springfield for a dance competition in March the same as this year but we found we had a lot of time to fill this year and decided to venture out a little. The museums are conveniently located on the same place and admission gets you into to all of the museums. It was a pleasant... More

I have been to this museum complex many times. It is a must see when out of town friends come to visit. As a 3rd generation motorcyclist, I enjoy the Indian Motocycle area, as well as the other mechanical areas featuring GEEBEE Racer airplanes as well as earlier Daimler Benz vehicles. As a Springfield native, I am well aware of... More

This is a great local museum to bring your children. Lots to do and explore. I really love the space area and the dinosaur exhibit!

Very good animal displays. Nice layouts and excellent story boards. It's geared mostly for kids but is still worth a visit as a traveling soloist.

We had a surprisingly great time at this smallish science museum. Our expectations were low as we really came to see the Suess sculpture garden. Then we stumbled on the science museum and spent over an hour enjoying all the exhibits. The kids LOVED all the minerals and rocks, animals, habitats, all of it. The gift shop was excellent. The...

Each time I return to this museum I have one idea in my mind: viewing the 20 early horseless carriages.. namely the Duryea and Springfield-Made Rolls Royce. Under 3,000 Rolls were fashioned between 1921 and 1931,Silver Ghost saw a production of only 1100 and Phantoms of 1844. Old car museums are a dying breed, so it seems. It is a... More

We visited just the Fine Arts Museum at the "Springfield Museum." It has a very nice and varied collection of art & sculpture as well as fun children's exhibition, not surprising since Springfield is the home of Dr. Seuss! The Fine Arts museum features both American and European Masters such as Bierstadt, Homer, Copley, Gaugin, Picasso and Monet. Definitely worth... More
