  • Very cool group of museums. 6year old and 2 year old had a lot of fun. Good mix of hands on stuff for the kids and small enough hands off museum for the kids to walk through without getting too restless. Wide enough areas to walk around with a stroller which is convenient and would be very easy for wheelchairs. The Dr. Seuss museum was very well done. The artwork inside and the decorations were great. You really felt like you walked into his world.
  • We spent about two hours here. The Museum has 2 floors and a basement. There are elevators, and very clean restrooms. Our 6 and 9 year olds loved the play areas, especially the bakery. (Most of our two hours was spent watching them have fun with the hands-on displays.) Great photo ops with models of book characters and scenes. Interactive screens with rhyming and vocabulary games. Interesting historical displays that reveal quite a bit about the author. Downstairs is a large arts and crafts room led by a very nice staff member. (We made hats out of newsprint.) There’s a small corner with a rug and books where parents and kids can read. The gift shop is located in the welcome center and has items related to all the museums. The Dr. Seuss section is surprisingly sparse, with a very small selection of books, tee shirts, plush characters, and related items.
