In honor of Dr. Seuss Day and Read Across America, the Museum welcomes artists, poets, storytellers, and children of all ages to share their favorite Dr. Seuss stories and characters. There are so many ways to play! Come in costume, create a Seussical mural, build whimsical structures, write poetry, and enjoy story time.

Don't miss out on special presentations by Disney Artist, Art Alvarez!

Participation is open to guest artists, poets, storytellers, actors and makers. Teachers are invited to share Dr. Seuss inspired creative projects from their classrooms or to host an activity on-site. To schedule a time, activity, or arrange to display student materials, please contact Theresa Reilly, Curator of Education, at (805) 688-7889 or
