A portrait of Dr. Seuss (Theodore Seuss Geisel) is seen during a press preview of an interactive exhibition dedicated to Dr. Seuss at the Children's Museum of Manhattan July 6, 2004 in New York City.

"This museum is about visitors encountering the creatures that sprang out from Ted Geisel's imagination-Horton, the Cat in the Hat, the Lorax, Sam I Am-that got kids excited about reading, which was really his preoccupation later on in his career", Kay Simpson, president of the Springfield Museums complex, told AP.

The museum's goal is also to help promote childhood literacy, which was one of Geisel's passions. She said that she believes the museum is ideal because it means that his work will be there permanently and will be protected and safe. The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss just shot to the top of our list. 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. The first floor takes visitors through Geisel's childhood home, his bedroom, his grandparent's bakery, and a brewery and also features games, interactive statues, and figures from his most famous works.

The second floor recreates Geisel's studio and living room with actual furniture and art materials that he used, as well as features never seen in public, such as family photos and other art creations. Even his collection of 117 bowties is on display.

"They don't acknowledge the full picture of him or they try to minimize that or sweep it under the rug", said Ishizuka, director of The Conscious Kid Library, which lends what she says are more diverse and appropriate books for young readers.

It was a sea of striped hats, as relatives of the famed author, illustrator and Springfield native were joined by Lt. Gov. Karen Polito and Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno to open the museum doors.
