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.

Lots of us who grew up with Yertle the Turtle and the cat in the hat were enjoying this wonderful outdoor exhibit of Suess characters. Current children also. Great photo ops.

This was the main reason we came to Springfield! We came to see the Dr. Seuss Sculpture Garden. The sculptures were very nice, the only complaint that I have is that there weren't any Sneech Statues! They are my favorite Seuss characters!

What a lovely sculpture garden in the midst of hard-hit Springfield. As a Dr. Seuss fan from childhood, it was fun to see my picture-book icons brought to live.

This small courtyard filled with oversized sculptures invites kids to climb and play on arches, benches, and bridges. As others have pointed out, you can quickly wander into some very rough neighborhoods. However, the sculpture garden and surrounding museum complex are clean and seem safe....More
