Hi! Thank you for your nice words. We'll take into consideration adding more sculptures. The Lorax statue was a later addition so there is the possibility of always adding even more characters. We hope you'll be able to visit again soon!

Amazing history in Springfield, Mass. Great resource to our community as well as interactive. Next to the library which is a beautiful place in itself and close to downtown and mass mutual center.

I love Dr. Seuss so I thought the museum and garden were really cool. It is a bit childish, and kids will definitely enjoy it. But even as an adult I did too

Surrounded by museums with free parking at said museums, the sculpture garden is an easy stop to make. If you have time, certainly visit the museums, but if you're short on time and just like roadside attraction-esque sites, then the sculpture garden is worth the...More

The sculptures were as if Dr. Seuss himself made them. Artwork was really spot on, they were roped off because of the heat, which another person commented, so the kids got bored quickly over there, but they were very hot as we noticed going up...More

Hi Michaela! Thank you for your kind words! While Dr. Seuss did not make the statues, his step-daughter Lark Grey Dimond Cates did, using his designs, of course! We hope you are able to visit again soon.

The garden is very fun and interesting. Because of the heat, the sculptures were roped off and we couldn't get close to them, but we could still take photos and sit in the grass and relax for a few hours

Great sculptures, in a beautiful setting, and on a cooler day the kids can play on them. The gardens were cool though, with some big trees providing shade.
