Museum dedicated to Dr. Seuss opens

Springfield, the hometown of Theodore Seuss Geisel, the author who's nickname eventually became the legendary Dr. Seuss. Seuss Museum features exhibits inspired from some of Theodor Seuss Geisel's most iconic characters and books, as well as new artwork and information about Seuss' childhood upbringing. One of Geisel's stepdaughters says Dr Seuss "would absolutely be at ease" in the museum. 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 garden is home to a bronze statue of Seuss, plus sculptures of some of his most beloved characters, including Horton (Horton Hears a Who), the Grinch, Yertle the Turtle, and the Cat in the Hat.

Visitors are taken through Geisel's boyhood bedroom, his grandparents' businesses and different rooms with themes based on different Dr Seuss books. The floor is full to the brim with Geisel's belongings, furnishings and knick-knacks from his California studio, where he lived up until his sad death in 1991.

People came from all over to attend the museum's grand opening, but the incredible world of dr. Seuss held special meaning for Springfield natives. "I would never try to, and he would not want any of us to try to hide away anything he did".

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. "The more personal side that doesn't often get seen by the general public", said the grand nephew of Dr. Seuss, Theodor Owens.
