“A nice rest stop”
Reviewed 18 May 2007

A nice place for a pit stop, but it was a little tricky to find. It is in a courtyard near the science museum. We stopped by on our way from Cooperstown to Boston.

“Oh, the places you'll go!”
Reviewed 20 July 2005

The Dr. Seuss Memorial is a great little place to stop and experience a 3-D version of some of your favorite children's stories. The memorial is located in a small park in the middle of a complex of buildings known as the "Quadrangle" which includes some museums and attractions. These were closed on the morning that I was there, so I didn't get to see them. However, the Dr. Seuss park was delightful. You'll find statues of the Lorax, The Cat in the Hat, Theodore Giesel himself, Thing 1 and Thing 2, Sam I am, and a few other of your favorites. It's fun, it's whimsical, it's attractive, and it's well worth a stop if you're in that part of the state. However, if you had to drive quite a ways to get there like I did, you may want to schedule some other stops to make it worth the trip. We also went up north to Deerfield to the Yankee Candle store to make it a full day.
