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.

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

We went to the Springfield Museums and absolutely loved our visit to the Seuss Museum as well as the others. The bottom floor is very hands on for kids but contains a lot of interesting things that adults would like as well. The second floor...More
