Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden

Springfield, MA

I had to travel to Springfield, MA for a training class through work. The class starts at 8am so I naturally left the previous day to ensure I would be here on time. It had nothing to do with me wanting to explore a different city with my camera. 🙂

I was hoping to explore the Springfield Armory which is a National Historic Site but the operating hours probably are not going to work out for me. What I did find as I wandered around the city near the hotel was the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden. The sculptures are scattered throughout a museum quadrangle with a very large display in the center park. I wish I visited at a time when there were leaves on the trees to add a little more color and a less barren look to the area. It is still a very cool display…

  1. I wish I had seen this post earlier in the week – would’ve realized sooner you were here 😉
    You are a brave soul wandering the streets of Sprimgfield!!! Nice to see a place in my own backyard through someone else’s not jaded eyes.

    • For some reason I thought you were closer to Boston. I wandered during the daylight hours and stayed mainly on major streets. The area around the hotel looks really nice and bolstered my resolve to explore more. Besides, ignorance is definitely bliss. 🙂
