Now I know museums can sometimes be a snooze fest, especially to kids, but these two sound really pretty cool. From what I am reading in the press, you don’t have to be a book geek like me to consider putting these on your itinerary if you are ever in the respective neighborhoods.
They are definitely on my check-out list for the family when we are next in Chicago and Western Mass. I’ll post our in-person reactions at some point, but for now, a quick overview of why these are sounding good:
The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss museum in Springfield, MA, opened a few short weeks ago and is billed as the first and only museum dedicated to the work of Theodore Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss. It boasts bi-lingual exhibits and programming, and two floors of original artifacts and activities geared toward encouraging children to read and have fun. The $25 adult ticket fee sounds high, but buys you access to several other museums in Springfield as well. (See the on-site review from The Boston Globe.) So, put this on the list of “places you’ll go” with your Things 1, 2, 3 as the case may be, sometime!
