Springfield has an entire set of museums - science, history, two art museums, a Dr. Seuss sculpture garden (and soon a Dr. Seuss museum as well) all adjacent to the Springfield central library at the Quadrangle. The range of items across the museums is large, from french impressionist paintings in an art museum, to items from Springfield history, to Planetarium... More

Beautiful, paintings, sculptures, natural history scenes. There is also an amazing museum of Springfield's rich history, and don't forget Dr. Seuss!

We thought we were going to spend a couple hours and ended up staying for the morning and afternoon, we still didn't see one whole museum! There was so much to do and see...the art museum had a kids center too, we made a frog hat with our toddler! Can't wait for the Dr. SUESS museum to be there!!

My son and I went to the science and Springfield history museums. Both were very good. We learned so much! The bees were fascinating. And the Milton Bradley game section was really fun. We had a good time posing with the Dr. Seuss statues too.

I only visited the Springfield museum area courtyard where the excellent Dr. Suess memorial sculptures reside. It was too early in the morning to enjoy the museums, but the area was impeccably clean and well tended to the last detail! I've included pics of the sculptures. I would love the opportunity to visit the museums one day!
