Dr. Seuss Museum

The Amazing World Of Dr. Seuss has recently opened in Springfield, Massachusetts, the hometown of the good doctor himself, Theodore Seuss Geisel. The museum opened this past Saturday, June third, and rumor has it that it’s just like walking into one of the dozens of rhyming books Geisel wrote. The first floor of the permanent museum is filled with interactive exhibits that allow kids to explore language, rhyming, invent stories, and encourage creative thinking. The second floor of the museum is dedicated to the personal life of Dr. Seuss and is filled with memorabilia, original oil paintings, clothing, furniture from Geisel’s home including his drawing table, favorite chair and sofa. The walls of the building are decorated with artwork from Dr. Seuss books, the house is filled with color and characters from the famous books. This is definitely on my list of places to visit the next time we are in the Boston area, for now, we’ll have to settle for some images, I can’t wait to go, Enjoy!!! (above image via)
