Seuss in Springfield is part of the five-museum Springfield Museums complex in the heart of downtown Springfield, Massachusetts celebrating the work of Theodore Seuss Geisel.
Born in Springfield, MA in 1904, Geisel was a prolific creator who worked as a political cartoonist and animator, though he is perhaps best known as the author of over 60 children’s books under the moniker ‘Dr. Seuss’. Springfield Museums pays tribute to their native son through exhibits dedicated his life and work. Visitors to Seuss in Springfield can take in the fanciful Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden – home to massive sculptures of instantly recognizable Dr. Seuss characters – and The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum – a space highlighting the personal stories and many works of Geisel. Adult visitors to the Museum will appreciate learning more about Geisel and the origins of the Dr. Seuss characters that filled their childhood imaginations. Children at the exhibit will recognize the many characters they’ve come to know through books, movies, and television while discovering new elements to the stories they’ve come to know and love.
No visit to Seuss in Springfield would be complete without a visit to The Reading Room, a space that encourages families to sit and read aloud from their favourite Dr. Seuss book(s). The perfect way to end an afternoon spent marveling at the works of one of pop culture’s most prolific contributors.
Plan your next vacation to include a visit to a play-related store, museum, or private collection.
