Seuss in Springfield

Building a Better Quadrangle

The Museums have launched a capital campaign to enhance our legacy and secure our position as one of the region’s most visited and valuable treasures.

The centerpiece of the campaign is the creation of  The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum, the only museum to honor the life and work of Springfield native, Theodor Seuss Geisel.

Legacy Society

A bequest or charitable trust to the Springfield Museums provides an enduring legacy and will help to ensure the long-term financial stability of the Museums and the Dr. Seuss Sculpture Garden.

Tribute Donations

The Springfield Museums often receive gifts from Members and donors that are made in memory or in honor of a loved one. Tributes may be designated in support of collections funds in the individual Museums, special projects, scholarships to the Museum School, or other projects. Tributes are fully tax deductible.

Make a Tribute Gift

Art & Artifacts

One of the most important ways that Museums build their collections is through the generosity of private collectors and benefactors who donate their treasured works of art, historical artifacts, or scientific collections to the Museums for the benefit of future generations.

Goods & Services

The Museums are grateful for donation of goods or professional services. Recent in-kind donations have included things such as rubber gloves and trash bags for the annual Earth Day Clean-Up, printing of invitations, holiday decorations, refreshments and more.
