One of the main reasons we are currently doing a Dr. Seuss unit is because a local museum is having a special exhibit. Big Buddy and I went on a to date to the museum this past weekend and to be honest, I was a little disappointed. The problem was the website promised hands-on experiences like oobleck and a chance to build "Seussian" contraptions with wheels, horns and tubes. These activities were no where to be found and, except for a small corner, it was not what I'd consider an overall child-friendly exhibit.

Big Buddy however did enjoy his visit - being able to see the statues and large pictures of some of his favorite characters as well as lots of Dr. Seuss himself. Several of other exhibits in the museum were also a delight.
