“Whimsical and Fun”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

The Dr. Seuss Sculpture Garden is inside the Museum Quadrangle and is a fun stop for kids of all ages. Many of your favorite characters join a nice one of Theodor Seuss Geisel who was born in Springfield.

The Lorax and Grinch are there too, along with the entire text of "Oh, The Places You'll Go". Fun for pictures, though they discourage climbing on the statues.

“Quick walk on a break from the Mass Mutual convention center”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

If you're looking for an opportunity to stretch your legs during a conference break, this is a quick trip. If you're traveling with kids, it's a must see. Fun sculptures and free! Who doesn't love Dr Seuss? Great photo opportunities. If you geocache, it's worth including in your visit here.
