I went there several years ago but this time with my children. They loved it. It was great. Explain to the children that the old paintings that look so real, look so real, yet these were paints they made themselves and thick gloppy oil paint, yet they were able to achieve such delicate features...the hands and lace.....then the children can be impressed even if the pictures seem from such a long time ago.

From Our Editors

Springfield Museums showcases a sculpture garden honoring Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel), who was raised in Springfield. All four buildings are centrally located around the scenic view of a quadrangle.

Michele & Donald D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts

  • Most nostalgic images: the Currier & Ives prints at the D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts, the only museum with a permanent gallery dedicated to their lithographs
  • Artists featured in the French Impressionist exhibit: Monet, Renoir, Degas, and Gauguin
  • The setting: The museum is housed in an Art Deco?style estate and opened in 1934

George Walter Vincent Smith Art Museum

  • Best way to try on armor without traveling back in time: the Asian-themed Art Discovery Center for kids
  • Why even the windows are masterpieces: Not all the museum's art is framed or behind velvet ropes; some of it is incorporated right into the building's design. The Tiffany Glass Company specially designed intricate windows for the museum, and they're the only museum-specific Tiffany windows to survive today.
  • Most unusual feature: The ashes of George Smith and his wife are interred on the second floor.

Springfield Science Museum

  • Two big scientific events of 1859: Springfield Museums received its first exhibit donations and Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species
  • Kids will love: the full-size T-rex replica in the dinosaur exhibit
  • The next best thing to being an astronaut: touching the outer-space rocks in Astronomy Hall

Lyman & Merrie Wood Museum of Springfield History

  • Founded: 2009?it's the newest of all the museums
  • What you'll see: items from Springfield in the 19th and 20th centuries, including a Rolls-Royces and Indian motorcycles manufactured in Springfield.
  • What you won't see: proof that this is the Springfield in The Simpsons
  • Museum within a museum: The exhibits of the Connecticut Valley Historical Museum have been moved here.
