Bring the kids to this outdoor sculpture garden where the Cat in the Hat, the Grinch, and other beloved Dr. Seuss characters are immortalized in bronze, life-size statues all designed by Geisel's step-daughter, sculptor Lark Grey Dimond-Cates.

There are only a limited number of statues and they are in bronze. This attraction could be so much better with more Seuss characters and if they were painted in Seuss colors. Small children will enjoy them, older children will grow tired of it quickly....More

Enjoy Dr. Seuss Exhibition through the eyes of your grand-babies. It's like a little bit of the book is coming to life & they can relate to it, so COOL!

A fun place to see Dr. Seuss characters in a bigger than life size. It brought back memory and stories that we read to our children when they were a baby.

Hi Kayla-- If you are visiting the Sculpture Garden, our Blake House Cafe is right next to the parking area. There are restaurants in there. Thanks for asking and enjoy your visit!
We will be passing throught the area and would love to stop and see the memorial garden (not the museums). Will we be able to walk out 35-40 lb, friendly dog through the memorial garden with us? TIA!

We were asked to leave with our dog & were told no dogs allowed. They were polite and friendly about it.
