Great sculptures!

I loved the sculptures in the courtyard. They were very well done and beautiful looking in the snow.

my son likes Dr. Seuss. The bronze statue are exquisite and tell the Story quite well , and bring the caricatures up close and personal. The Garden makes a wonderful photo shoot.

Lots of us who grew up with Yertle the Turtle and the cat in the hat were enjoying this wonderful outdoor exhibit of Suess characters. Current children also. Great photo ops.

This was the main reason we came to Springfield! We came to see the Dr. Seuss Sculpture Garden. The sculptures were very nice, the only complaint that I have is that there weren't any Sneech Statues! They are my favorite Seuss characters!

What a lovely sculpture garden in the midst of hard-hit Springfield. As a Dr. Seuss fan from childhood, it was fun to see my picture-book icons brought to live.

I think they would love it if they know the characters from the books! However, I don't think it would be worth the 2 hour drive just for the garden.
