Springfield Museums

Since their founding in 1857, the Museums have been a source of culture, education, and inspiration for the region. Located in the heart of downtown Springfield, Massachusetts, the Museums offer access to five world-class museums and the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden all under a single admission.
