“oh the places you'll go”
The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss is a permanent, bilingual museum designed to introduce children and their families to the stories of Ted Geisel, promote joy in reading, and nurture specific literacy skills. The 3,200-square-foot first floor exhibition will provide opportunities to explore new sounds and vocabulary, play rhyming games, invent stories, and engage in activities that encourage teamwork and creative thinking. The second floor will be filled with personal memorabilia belonging to Ted Geisel, including original oil paintings, a collection of zany hats and bowties, the original Geisel Grove sign which used to hang in Forest Park, and furniture from Ted’s sitting room and studio, including his drawing board, breakfast table, sofa, and armchair.
The museum is beautifully nuts. The inside of the building is completely covered in Dr. Seuss drawings (floor to ceiling). Its well worth the admission fee. Just be prepared for lots of screaming children.
If you're looking for some free Seuss, there is a sculpture park on the grounds that features Yertle the Turtle, The Grinch, and Horton.
Parking is also free, but the lot fills up quickly.
