We thoroughly enjoyed the Seuss museum. It was especially cool to read some of his fun personal correspondence. Great for kids and adults alike.

Great museum for kids. Kind of small but the ticket comes with the entrance for the other museums as well. The garden is really cool too if you like Dr. Seuss.

Very interesting museum. Must be taken in at least once. Our kids are grown and out of the house and we seriously enjoyed our visit here. Nice to have it in Springfield.

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.
