Tips for a wonderful experience at the Museums
  • Due to the popularity of the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum, we are using timed tickets in order to stagger entry into the new museum. The timed ticket does not cost extra money, it just helps to assure you and your family have plenty of room to play as we control the number of people in the museum at all times.
  • Closets, lockers, and cubbies are available in each of our five museums for your convenience.
  • We allow outside food and drink in designated eating areas—the Welcome Center, the picnic benches under the red-striped tent, and the Quadrangle Green.
  • We have a wonderful café for those who would like to purchase food while visiting.
  • To plan your visit to our five museums, you can review this map.
