  • We were thrilled when we heard that there was a new Seuss museum in Springfield. It's VERY kid focused, and kid friendly. The rooms are bright and invited for children to explore. There are LOTS of ph...  more »

  • I am not too familiar with Dr. Seuss, but the sculptures seemed to draw a lot of kids. Nice walkways around.  more »

  • I just checked out the price to attend the Dr. Seuss museum. I live close enough that I could go see the museum. Unfortunately, the doctor is rolling in his grave. The admission charges prevent low income people and children from being able to enjoy the museum. Of all people that Dr. Seuss would want to visit his museum would be low income children. They are the ones who mostly hit huge challenges learning to read. Dr. Seuss books are hugely important in helping children read and the ones who need the most help reading, who love Dr. Seuss, are priced out of visiting his museum. What gives???? All people, particularly all children should be able to visit and enjoy this tribute to Dr. Seuss. Shame on the creators of the museum.
  • Way overpriced for what it was. $76.00 for a family of 4. We were there for about an hour, craft section was out of supplies. No interaction with any characters or staff. The cat in the hat mascot was outside with thing 1 and 2 but not inside the museum at all. Would not recommend.
  • Great setup and excellent for even toddlers. So much for them to see and interact with. Great photo opportunities!
  • Place was super nice and freshly painted. JUST didn't connect with the stories he wrote . Good stuff though
  • The kids enjoyed the museum's exhibits and especially the Dr Seuss exhibits. Definitely all day trip.
