Rainy Day in Springfield
Luckily there is a cluster of museums in downtown Springfield, so we spent our last day of vacation over there. We first visited the Springfield Science Museum which was very similar to the Hall of Science in Queens and was like a miniature version of the American Museum of Natural History. From there we went to the Connecticut Vally Historical Museum where there was a permanent exhibit devoted to Theodore Giesel better known as Dr. Seuss, the author of children's books. Our las stop was the Michele and Donald D'Armour Museum of Fine Arts which featured art works from local artists. There were also exhibits of European art works from medieval times until today.
