Excellent day at the museum. My husband and I went to the Springfield Museum and was pleasantly surprised. You would think you were in a metropolitan city. Each museum was beautiful with many pieces to enjoy.

It would be hard to find a better value than a visit to the Springfield Museums. One admission covers two art museums, one science, one on Springfield history and one devoted to native son, Dr. Suess. It's overwhelming to cover each thoroughly in one visit,...More
