I grew up ready all of Dr. Seuss' books. It was really amazing seeing these sculptures and getting my pictures with them. Also, I loved the House made out of wicker near the lorax statue. AMAZING!!

Okay, you're at the museums and the kids need to burn off some energy in between visiting the 2 art museums, the science museum, and the city library. This is the place to let them burn it. Or you're tired and just want to sit for a while, so sit. The sculptures are cool to see, but there's not a lot to DO here. It's mostly just a pause in between other things.

I hadn't expected much, but I love Dr. Seuss enough to have wanted to check it out, and I'm really glad I did. I felt like a kid again skipping around and greeting some of my favorite childhood friends! We probably spent about twenty minutes playing with them, and reading "Oh, The Places You'll Go!"

I felt that they could of designed this to be more kid oriented since he was a children's author. Instead it is more of a dedication to him. I think things should be more fun and whimsical.

Those who learned to read with Horton, The Cat in the Hat, and Yertle the Turtle must visit this tribute to the wonderful Dr. Seuss! The sculptures are spread out amongst the grounds of several museums -- perhaps good "bait" to get little ones to experience a visit to a museum. The only criticism I have is that some of the plaques accompanying the statues had either been defaced, or allowed to weather past being completely readable.
