Let your inner child rise to the surface and share the magic of the whimsical Dr. Seuss at the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden. Located in Springfield, Massachusetts, this unique sculpture garden is a delight for all ages.
Now you can stroll through the beautiful Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden where some of Dr. Seuss's most beloved characters come to life. Sculptor Lark Grey Diamond-Cates, who is also Geisel's step-daughter, created the endearing bronze sculptures of Dr. Seuss, and his lovable characters for the Springfield Library & Museums Association, located in the heart of this city which is on the Connecticut River in Western Massachusetts. From Horton to a 10-turtle-tall tower from Yertle the Turtle, you will find many surprises throughout the gardens.
Another place we've enjoyed Dr. Seuss is at Universal Orlando in Florida. Dr. Seuss brought to life a wild and fantastic world of Who's and Blue Fish. When I was young the wild and imaginative stories of Dr. Seuss took me to a world where anything was possible. It was wonderful to share this same journey with our children. Regardless of what may be happening around you once you pick up a Dr. Seuss book you forget everything else.
