Dr Seuss stories come to life

There’s a new Dr Seuss museum in Springfield, MA and, as expected, it’s a huge hit with kids. The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum opened in June as part of the Springfield Museum complex. The first floor is dedicated to Theodor Geisel’s Springfield roots; the second floor includes a recreation of his studio and living room complete with his actual drawing table. The Young Ted gallery features a replica of the writer’s childhood home; inside there’s a touchscreen where kids can “draw” on the bedroom walls as Ted famously did. Other spaces include the Seuss Bakery, similar to the one that Ted’s grandparents ran on Howard Street, and Forest Park Zoo, which was run by Ted’s father. Then there’s the ABC Wall, Green Eggs and Ham WordPlay, and zany characters from Wump of Gump to Cat in the Hat who has arms, legs and a tail that move. Timed tickets for the five museums in the complex: adults US$25, kids 3 to 17 US$13. springfieldmuseums.org.
