Museums open for engagement online

During this time of closure, the Springfield Museums want very much to stay connected with our visitors—we miss you and hope you are all keeping safe and well.

With art, history, science and Seuss as resources, we are pleased to offer a number of ways to explore our collections, programs, and activities from wherever you might be. Enjoy exploring this expanded content—we will continue to update the information, so please check back often.

There is a lot to engage with on our social media on our social media channels as well. We look forward to seeing you soon #AtTheMuseums!

We want to make sure you know about our wonderfully whimsically, interactive SeussInSpringfield.org, where you can learn about Ted Geisel—aka Dr. Seuss—and his childhood in Springfield, MA. This site includes lots of interactive games. Please check it out.
