Start early, plan on taking a whole day, take breaks for lunch and afternoon. There is so much to see and learn it can be tiring. I await another groupon deal. This was my 3rd trip and still missed a lot.

Many exhibits are a la carte, for an extra fee. Be prepared to pay more than you thought.

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.
