Dr. Seuss – Children’s Museum

Home / Culture / Dr. Seuss – Children’s Museum


The Mississippi Children’s Museum is a world of wonder any day of the year, delighting kids of all ages with its giant Scrabble board, tyke-sized Mississippi landmarks, dance studio and much more. Focusing on literacy, health and nutrition, cultural arts, Mississippi Heritage and S.T.E.M. subjects, all the exhibits at the museum offer hands-on learning experiences.

Each year, literacy (and silliness) takes the spotlight during the annual Dr. Seuss’ Silly Birthday Celebration. Last year, events for the celebration included ooey gooey oobleck experiments, green eggs and ham cooking demonstrations, story time featuring Seuss classics, Cat in the Hat yoga sessions, a Lorax mustache competition, Wocket-in-my-Pocket scavenger hunt and “more fling-flang fun.” Characters from some of Dr. Seuss’ most famous books were on hand

“We look forward to this day every year. It is a great time to celebrate one of the most famous children’s book authors and celebrate literacy,” says MCM President and CEO Susan Garrard on the museum’s website. “Events, like Dr. Seuss’ Silly Birthday Celebration, provide children with an opportunity to experience literacy come to life off the pages of a book.” —Kathleen M.
