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.

Its a part dedicated to Dr. Seuss. Its creative, unique, and worth a visit for about 30-60 minutes. Worth a stop by but Springfield is not a nice area.

If you don’t have time to visit the museum, take a few minutes to explore the sculptures in the garden. Great stop. Free parking.

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.
