It is always a great day at the Springfield Museums.
I've been taking my son there since he was little, as well as my niece and nephews.
They always enjoy the visit.

The history of the Springfield area is quite fascinating. I was surprised to find out items I used during my childhood came from Springfield.
This area has several museums that will allow you to visit with the one paid admission. Please inquire at this museum first.

Hi Jsei7-- Thank you for the review. Sorry that the Museums were not as updated as you would like. We would love to know more about your thoughts on changes. We recently added our fifth museum (Amazing World of Dr. Seuss), with the History Museum having only opened in 2009. Our Museums also feature traveling exhibits, including Smithsonian exhibits (such as Jeweled Objects of Desire in the DMFA). Feel free to email us at info@springfieldmuseums.org and reference this review. We would love to hear more about ways we can improve upon your experience.

We intended only to visit the Dr. Seuss museum, but since we had a few hours to spare decided to visit the art museum. We were in for a surprise. Beautiful museum with great architecture. Interesting exhibits, especially for children. Definitely did not expect to find sure treasures in a small town.
We also visited the history museum to see the Indian Motorcycle exhibit. We also learnt a lot about Springfield's rich industrial history in automotive and aviation.

Hi BertonU-- Thank you for the great review. We are often hearing that people who came for Seuss were pleasantly surprised by how much we had to offer and this makes us so happy. We hope you will be back soon to do some further exploring!
