Bring the kids to this outdoor sculpture garden where the Cat in the Hat, the Grinch, and other beloved Dr. Seuss characters are immortalized in bronze, life-size statues all designed by Geisel's step-daughter, sculptor Lark Grey Dimond-Cates.

Neat bronze sculpture garden inside the courtyard of all of Springfield's main museums. The sculpture garden itself is free. Neat stop if you have 20 minutes to spare.
