We had fun here - the museum is really neat and there are some hands on things for kids to do but it's on the small side for the cost of admission.

So cool! I am by no means a Seuss junky but this was a really beautiful step into his world. The museum truly looks like you walked into Whoville. Along with the family history and artifacts upstairs, the stop was worth it.

To be honest, we were a bit disappointed with this museum. While the facts were interesting and it’s beautifully done, there’s not much to it for the price. It would be much better if you could just choose the one museum you want to visit...More

My husband and I took our 3 grandchildren (7 year old twins and a 4 year old) to this museum, and they were absolutely entranced. It’s a brightly decorated house, with rooms devoted to various Seuss stories and characters. There are plenty of hands on...More

Small museum, but was a nice visit. Seeing the big characters there, like Horton, was our favorite part! We traveled with a 1 1/2 year old, so some of the activities were a little grown up for us. But we still had a good time....More

The museum will draw many memories of Dr. Seuss' books. The 2nd floor provides history of Dr. Seuss and his family. Don't forget the Dr. Seuss Sculpture Garden as well.

Nope, We walked right up and got a time card that told us when we would be admitted to the Seuss museum. In the mean time we visited the other museums that were part of the complex.
