Hampden County

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A distinguished visitor from Beacon Hill toured the Dr. Seuss Museum at the Springfield quadrangle on Monday.

President of the Massachusetts Senate Karen Spilka came to share in the magic that’s made the Dr. Seuss Museum so popular.

The Ashland Democrat told 22News that Dr. Seuss’ stories have long captivated her family. “Oh, I think this is fabulous, everybody knows about him, the Cat in the Hat, and all of the other stories,” Spilka said. “My kids grew up on them and there’s a lot of us who grew up on them.”

At the Seuss Museum, the Senate President voiced her support for the Dr. Seuss license plates that may soon be rolling off the assembly line.

It will take 750 license tag requests to put them on the road. So far, the registry has received 350. 

The plates are designed to benefit the Springfield museums and its programs.
