CT Bucketlist: Dr. Seuss Museum

"Wide-eyed, kids will not sit still," said Laura Sutter, from The Dr. Seuss Museum. "It is just excitement all over the place.

SPRINGFIELD, Massachusetts — It was a fun-filled Bucket List stop just north of the Connecticut border on Wednesday.

FOX61 sent our very own thing one and thing two to explore the Dr. Seuss Museum. Keith McGilvery and Margaux Farrell had quite the experience at The Dr. Seuss Museum in Springfield, Ma.

It’s a fun-filled adventure with whimsical magic around every corner. 

"Wide-eyed, kids will not sit still," said Laura Sutter, from The Dr. Seuss Museum. "It is just excitement all over the place.

At the Dr. Seuss Museum, visitors of all ages can interact with the characters that brought the famed author’s many memorable books to life.

"I think it is the rhyming," said Sutter. "He was really the first children’s book author to make writing creative for children to read, and even as an adult, it is hard to get Dr. Seuss out of your head."

For Jenny Powers, who also works at the museum, work is a passion and one she takes very seriously.

"I love everything about celebrating Dr. Seuss‘s birthday," said Jenny Powers from The Dr. Seuss Museum. "It is my favorite day of the year.

If you’re visiting from Connecticut kids get in for 13.50 dollars, and adults pay $25. The family's favorite destination is planning a month of special festivities come March.

"Something else I am really excited about, we are going to be having a beep and greet drive-through celebration," said Powers. "We are going to have characters, and we are going to have giveaways, and all kinds of music, and fun to celebrate our favorite author."

The museum is expanding hours to 7days a week for February vacation, and whether you visit in person, or try their virtual activities, this team hopes kids leave with a love for books.

"I want kids to say wow, I had so much fun, I can’t wait to get home and read a book," said Sutter.
