The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss in Springfield

Striped hats, rhymes and quips filling the halls of the brand new Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum. Springfield, Mass.is the hometown of Theodore Seuss Geisel, the author who's nickname eventually became the legendary Dr. Seuss.

He released a number of best-selling children's books under his Dr. Seuss name including "The Cat in the Hat", "Green Eggs and Ham", "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and many more.

"He would absolutely be at ease here", Leagrey Dimond, Geisel's stepdaughter, told AP.

The museum told AP that it left out Geisel's wartime work, as the space is aimed at children. She said that she believes the museum is flawless because it means that his work will be there permanently and will be protected and safe. The museum has said that they will not be exhibiting the author's political illustrations and propaganda from World War II, much of which was considered to feature racist elements and stereotyped the Japanese. It features games and climbable statues of Horton, the stack of turtles from "Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories" and Thing 1 and Thing 2 from "The Cat in the Hat".


The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m.to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m.to 5 p.m.

This new Dr Seuss museum will allow the public to see his childhood bedroom and even the bakery and brewery that his grandparents owned. Up on the second floor, visitors can see artifacts from Geisel's home and studio in La Jolla, California, including his extensive collection of bow ties. "There's a lot of imaginative play opportunities, and kids can touch anything and everything in that museum", she said.

Richard Minear, a professor emeritus of Japanese history at the University of MA, who wrote "Dr. Seuss Goes to War" about his political illustrations, says Geisel certainly had a blind spot on race, but it's not fair to judge his entire career on that work.

"He would be quite impressed with what they've put in the show, and to see kind of another side of his life", says Geisel's grand nephew Theodor Owens.
