There’s a new museum is set to travel the country dedicated to children’s book author and illustrator Theodor Seuss Geisel, otherwise known as Dr. Seuss.
The Dr. Seuss Experience will open this October and immerse guests inside some of the popular Dr. Seuss books like ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go,’ ‘The Cat in the Hat’, ‘The Lorax,’ and more!
The exhibit is a partnership between Dr. Seuss Enterprises and Kilburn Live, a division of Los Angeles-based entertainment company Kilburn Media, according to The Washington Post.
“I wanted to explore the books and bring the characters to life in a new and engaging way,” said Susan Brandt, president of Dr. Seuss Enterprises, the company founded by Audrey Geisel, the late widow of Theodor Seuss Geisel. Theodor Geisel wrote and illustrated dozens of children’s books under the pen name Dr. Seuss.
The 15,000 square-foot exhibit will feature a maze inspired by ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go,’ and will feature thousands of suspended balloons.
Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!
