A must for visitors and those who live nearby. They change some exhibits every few months. Very well done for a small city.

A great day of art & history! Loved the Springfield History Museum. We are always interested to learn more about cities we visit. Plan to return once Dr. Seuss museum is completed.

We go here and there, we always see things we missed or new things to see. And things to remind us of the art and history here.

We had a wonderful time here at the museums. We purchased the yearly membership to the Intrepid Museum in NYC which takes part in the ASTC program. The ASTC program allows you to visit other science museums which are located more than 90 miles from your residence with some exceptions. We decided to take a drive up the museums (and... More

I have taken my grandchildren here for years and we love all the exhibits. The animals are life like and the dinosaur is awesome. I have many great memories of the looking at colorful frogs and fish. It is a gem for Springfield.

I have been to the Springfield Museums more than once. There are several buildings you can walk through and they do not take long (nice if you have little ones). Different special exhibits each time you go. This time we went for the Gingerbread Exhibit (theme was Harry Potter). And another building had Ninja Turtle Exhibit.

Historically we have come to springfield for a dance competition in March the same as this year but we found we had a lot of time to fill this year and decided to venture out a little. The museums are conveniently located on the same place and admission gets you into to all of the museums. It was a pleasant... More

I have been to this museum complex many times. It is a must see when out of town friends come to visit. As a 3rd generation motorcyclist, I enjoy the Indian Motocycle area, as well as the other mechanical areas featuring GEEBEE Racer airplanes as well as earlier Daimler Benz vehicles. As a Springfield native, I am well aware of... More
