First-ever Dr. Seuss museum is being built in his hometown

Dr. Seuss will soon be celebrated in his hometown with a museum dedicated his work in children’s literature, the first of its kind in the world.

Announced by Springfield Museums, a group of five museums in the Massachusetts city, the $3.5 million Amazing World of Dr. Seuss is set to open in June 2016.

The main exhibit space will be divided into three sections — Mulberry Street, Dr. Seuss’ Neighborhood and Readingville — with classroom space, a reading nook and a display about the making of the Dr. Seuss National memorial Sculpture Garden, which has drawn an estimated 3 million visitors since 2002.

The second floor, which won’t open until 2017, will be transformed into “Ted’s Room,” a recreation of Theodor Seuss Geisel’s sitting room and studio, filled with his oil paintings, drawings, furniture and other memorabilia.

You can donate toward the construction of the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss on the Springfield Museums website.
