  • For admission price you get to visit the 4 (hopefully soon to be 5) museums. Unless you're an art enthusiast, you'll probably enjoy the terrific science museum the most. With a huge T-Rex, live displays (lower level) and a planetarium, this museum, though small, has a lot to offer. Until the opening of the Dr. Seuss museum in 2017, you can admire and take pictures with the beautiful Dr. Seuss figures sculptures outside.
  • Great place for kids and families but not for serious museum goers. There are fun exhibits a passionate staff and great programs for all ages. They're lacking in authentic and not reproduction pieces in all galleries, and it is easy to view all the exhibits in a few hours. If you live close and have young children it's a wonderful place to spend a rainy day!
  • Fantastic- Staff is professional, museums are connected with other events and clubs too.
  • Great place to just explore. I've been going her since I was little kid, happy to be bringing my kid here now. The museum of Springfield history is surprisingly interesting, my dad is a docent there.
  • A lot of variety but a lot of broken exhibits too. The Hasbro gallery seemed like it was really cool when it was new, but at least three of the games didn't work. The cafe on premises is pretty good and reasonably priced, which is good since there is nothing else in the area. It will be interesting to go back when the Dr. Seuss museum opens. For natural history, Yale's Peabody Museum is better and there are certainly better art museums around. The nice thing here is that you get a little of everything.
