Getting Silly with Dr. Seuss
at The Strong® Museum
March 4 & 5

Get Silly with Dr. Seuss at The Strong museum on Saturday, March 4 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday, March 5 from 1 to 4 p.m. Meet and pose for photos with the Thing 1 and Thing 2, and delight in activities inspired by the beloved author’s tales:

  • Delight in music from Seussical Jr. presented by Thomas Armstrong Middle School. Join Horton the Elephant as he goes on a journey to save the mayor’s son. Mr. and Mrs. Mayor, Horton’s neighbor Gertrude McFuzz, and the rest of Whoville try to help Horton during his quest. 
  • Search for red and blue fish, play Hop on Pop hopscotch, take a journey with the feet from The Foot Book, and enjoy physical and brain games inspired by the classic stories.
  • Travel through the pages of David Soman's Three Bears in a Boat with a story walk, an interactive way to exercise your brain and your body. Follow the story, then complete physical activities to move forward in the book’s plot.
  • Celebrate your favorite word by writing it in a creative design that can be displayed in a framed gallery.
  • Craft a miniature book from a single sheet of paper and come up with poems and stories to fill the pages.
