Very good animal displays. Nice layouts and excellent story boards. It's geared mostly for kids but is still worth a visit as a traveling soloist.

We had a surprisingly great time at this smallish science museum. Our expectations were low as we really came to see the Suess sculpture garden. Then we stumbled on the science museum and spent over an hour enjoying all the exhibits. The kids LOVED all the minerals and rocks, animals, habitats, all of it. The gift shop was excellent. The...

Each time I return to this museum I have one idea in my mind: viewing the 20 early horseless carriages.. namely the Duryea and Springfield-Made Rolls Royce. Under 3,000 Rolls were fashioned between 1921 and 1931,Silver Ghost saw a production of only 1100 and Phantoms of 1844. Old car museums are a dying breed, so it seems. It is a... More

We visited just the Fine Arts Museum at the "Springfield Museum." It has a very nice and varied collection of art & sculpture as well as fun children's exhibition, not surprising since Springfield is the home of Dr. Seuss! The Fine Arts museum features both American and European Masters such as Bierstadt, Homer, Copley, Gaugin, Picasso and Monet. Definitely worth... More

There seems to be something going on all the time. the times we have spent there going from room to room... More

We visited the history and science museums. The science museum was decent - would probably be better for those with young kids. We were able to get through it fairly quickly. I immensely enjoyed the Springfield history museum. I learned so much about Springfield and the Indian motorcycle exhibit was wonderful. I did think the admission cost was a little... More
