The Amazing World of Dr. SeussThe Amazing World of Dr. Seuss is part of the Springfield Museums in Springfield, Massachusetts, the hometown of Theodor Geisel, also known to young book fans as Dr. Seuss. The museum is a wonderful addition to the long-existing Dr. Seuss ‪sculpture garden.

The museum features hands-on exhibits that let kids explore language and literacy through different activities. One section replicates Dr. Seussí home, another, the Springfield Zoo where his father used to work.

It also includes a Seuss Bakery, inspired by the one his grandparents owned, where kids can bake their own pretend pies. Each room makes you feel like youíve stepped straight into the pages of your favorite Dr. Seuss book. Youíll also encounter Truffula Trees, Hortonís Whoville Band and lots more.

The second floor of the museum gives fans, young and old, a look at some of Ted Geiselís personal memorabilia, like paintings he made, a crazy hat collection he kept and furniture from his studio.
