Springfield Dr. Seuss Museum Opens

Seuss museum features artworks that have never been seen in public, along with interactive exhibits, and aims to explain how the author's childhood experiences inspired his work, Associated Press reports.

The museum's goal is also to help promote childhood literacy, which was one of Geisel's passions. "And to know that he's going to be here permanently, safe, protected, that people who want to know more are going to make this trip here to see him, it's flawless".

People came from all over to attend the museum's grand opening, but the unbelievable world of dr. Seuss held special meaning for Springfield natives. The museum has said that they will not be exhibiting the author's political illustrations and propaganda from World War II, much of which was considered to feature racist elements and stereotyped the Japanese.

Visitors are taken through Geisel's boyhood bedroom, given insights into the family and see various rooms with themes based on Dr Seuss books. "The second floor will be filled with personal memorabilia belonging to Ted Geisel, including original oil paintings, a collection of zany hats and bowties, the original Geisel Grove sign which used to hang in Forest Park, and furniture from Ted's sitting room and studio, including his drawing board, breakfast table, sofa, and armchair".

Richard Minear, a professor emeritus of Japanese history at the University of MA, who wrote "Dr. Seuss Goes to War" about his political illustrations, says Geisel certainly had a blind spot on race, but it's not fair to judge his entire career on that work. Geisel belongs in his hometown, the mayor said. This weekend, the city opened a museum dedicated to the beloved children's author.
