We visited this museum with our grandchildren, ages 5 and 7. They could not believe their good luck to be able to touch and explore next to their beloved characters. This museum has it all: Dr. Seuss personal history, hands on activities, and a make...More

I was in Springfield and couldn’t resist stopping in to see Dr. Seuss. It’s an interactive museum for children with a touch of Dr. Seuss’s biography. You’ll have a lot of Kodak moments in there. The Dr. Seuss museum is one amongst 5 museums in...More

Good pictures from the Suess books, cleverly labeled in rhyme, made this a very enjoyable visit. The displays also tell much about Geisel (Dr. Suess) himself.

We (2 adults) came here knowing the museum was probably going to be geared mostly towards kids, and it was actually pretty well balanced. The first floor is certainly the most kid-friendly part, but even as adults (and kids at heart) we thoroughly enjoyed it....More

I am not a big fan of Dr. Seuss books, maybe a little burnt out from Read Across a America as a teacher every year. But, I've been wanting to visit this museum for a while. I took my 15 year old daughter, who is...More

Dr.Suess has been a favourite since I was a kid. I couldn't miss the chance to visit when I was in the area. Not only was the Seuss Museum a blast, but there are other museums in the immediate vicinity, walking distance, that are worth...More

The museum is part of the Springfield museums so you pay one price for all of them, but look for discount programs because there's a ton. This museum is done very well, and the artwork is above average. A must see if you have little...More

Nope, We walked right up and got a time card that told us when we would be admitted to the Seuss museum. In the mean time we visited the other museums that were part of the complex.
