Springfield Museums

The Springfield Museums is comprised of four world-class museums – the D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts, the George Walter Vincent Smith Art Museum, the Springfield Science Museum, and the Wood Museum of Springfield History. The Museums Association is proud to be home to the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden, a series of full-scale bronze sculptures of Dr. Seuss' whimsical creations, honoring the birthplace of Theodor Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss.

The Springfield Museums offer programs for families as well as camp, youth, community center groups, and the general public. These program happen on weekends, school vacations, some holidays, and during the summer. On program days there are a variety of drop-in activities that provide avenues for children and families to learn together through performances and informal hands-on art activities and demonstrations. We schedule a variety of performances for family programs: music, dance, puppet shows, magic, science, live animals, and theater. Performances usually take place in the Davis Auditorium which seats 280 people.
