The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Was Once a History Museum

Pynchon Building
The Pynchon Building is the home of The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum

Almost from the moment people began to visit the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden, they asked "where is the Dr. Seuss museum?" Fifteen years, almost to the day later, the Springfield Museums threw open the doors of the new Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum. The fifteen years between the first question and the opened doors included a lot of work--not the least of which was turning the former Connecticut Valley Historical Society, the Pynchon Building, into the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum.
