Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Conceptual plan of the Oh the Places area

As visitors move into the final section of The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss, they are surrounded by the positive message of Theodor Geisel’s final book Oh, the Places You’ll Go! (1990). Written with a message of hope, Ted considered this work his final salute, addressing life’s obstacles and fears while offering encouragement to children.

After an exciting celebration of Dr. Seuss’s life and work, families have the opportunity to read aloud together before leaving the exhibit. The Reading Room is filled with all of Ted’s classic children’s books and comfortable seating on which to enjoy them. A bilingual listening station features headphones and audio books for children who wish to enjoy the books independently. Throughout the room, small interactive stations reinforce the positive message of his final work.
