At the new Dr. Seuss museum, you can spark your childlike imagination and learn more about the legendary author
I hope you’re sitting down, because our childhood dreams have just come true. A Dr. Seuss museum has opened in Springfield, Massachusetts, and it basically sounds like heaven for those of us who can’t get enough of his catchy rhymes and invented words.
The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss, which is located in the hometown of Theodor Geisel (his name wasn’t really Dr. Seuss), features never-before-seen artwork, interactive exhibits, and information about the childhood experiences that influenced his iconic work.
On the museum’s first floor, visitors can play games and climb on statues of beloved characters including Horton, the Cat in the Hat, the Lorax, and Sam I Am.
Displays of Geisel’s belongings from his California home and studio (where he lived and worked until his death in 1991) occupy the more intimate space of the second floor.
"He would absolutely be at ease here," Leagrey Dimond, Geisel’s stepdaughter, told the Associated Press. "And to know that he’s going to be here permanently, safe, protected, that people who want to know more are going to make this trip here to see him, it’s perfect."
Oh, the places you’ll go! The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss just shot to the top of our list.
