Advance tickets recommended!

Thank you for choosing to visit the Springfield Museums! The health and safety of all visitors is our priority. Please review our latest policies before your visit.

Due to the popularity of the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum, guests who plan to visit on the weekends or during school vacation are encouraged to make reservations to help ensure an opportunity to experience the popular museum.

Applying Gift Certificates, Admission Discounts & Non-Profit Passes

If you would like to purchase a ticket using a gift certificate, coupon, discount offer, or non-profit/library pass, you will need to do this transaction in person on the day of your visit at the Welcome Center. Reservations/advance tickets are available at full-price only.

Timed Entry Procedure

We are using timed entry tickets for the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss in order to permit plenty of room for guests to enjoy this popular museum. Every hour we admit a limited number of visitors to the Dr. Seuss Museum to prevent overcrowding. Once inside, you can stay as long as you like!

All tickets include general timed entry to the art, history, and science museums, as well as a separate timed entry to the Dr. Seuss Museum. All timed-entry tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis until we reach capacity. All visitors must check in at the Welcome Center, even if they have a ticket purchased online.
