By Maryann Yin Comment

Seuss Sculpture GardenThe directors behind the Springfield Museums intend to launch a new cultural institution in honor of Theodor Seuss Geisel. An opening date for the permanent exhibition (first floor) of the “The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum” has been set for June 2016.

According to the announcement, a permanent exhibit on the first floor will consist of three sections: Mulberry Street, Dr. Seuss’s Neighborhood, and Readingville. Visitors will encounter “a series of environments that replicate scenes from Dr. Seuss’s imagination and encounter life-sized three-dimensional characters and places from the books.”

The second floor area will showcase “a re-creation of Ted Geisel’s studio, an exhibition about the making of the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden and other related displays.” It will not be made available to the public until 2017. (via TheArtery)
