That’s right. It’ll be located in his hometown of Springfield, Massachusetts.
But if I’m being honest, I was very surprised to read that there isn’t a Dr. Seuss museum anywhere in the world. How is that possible? I mean, at least there could be a major attraction at a theme park or something. I’m 23-years-old and I’d like to go to something like that. Imagine how the kids would be!
Dr. Seuss is one of those timeless authors whose legacy and books will live on for decades and centuries to come, so I think it’s only fitting that he finally get a museum in his honor. I think it should have happened a long time ago, but I think today’s technology will make the museum all the better. Because it isn’t just a museum, it’s set to be an experience with life-sized characters and places from the books.
The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum is expected to open to the public in 2017.
What do you think? Are there any authors as deserving as Dr. Seuss for such an honor?
On this day in 2014 I published Question: Which book description is more enticing?.
