There are a handful of Seuss sculptures in the central garden in the middle of the Springfield Museums courtyard. It’s free to see them and fun to walk amongst them. Lovely to stop here, particularly if going to the museums.

We wanted to check out the sculpture garden while in Springfield, but didn't have time to go into the museum. The museum compound itself is definitely charming. The sculptures in the sculpture park are quite well done, but there aren't actually that many of them....More
