An interactive Dr. Suess exhibit will be hitting the road this fall!
Dr. Suess fans of all ages will get the chance to walk through some of their favorite books this fall at The Dr. Seuss Experience – it just has to make it to the U.S. first!
Guests will be invited to embark on a wondrous 15,000 square foot journey through nine different rooms based on classics like The Cat in the Hat and The Lorax. Not only will the pop-up include tons of selfie-worthy photo-ops, the touring installation also plans on promoting literacy and the prosocial messages the famed children’s author planted in his books!
The exhibit is centered around a maze based on Oh, The Places You’ll Go, the Dr. Suess tale infamous for encouraging young readers to explore the world and to move mountains despite the trials and tribulations. Susan Brandt, the president of San-Diego based Dr. Suess Enterprises (the company founded by Suess’ late widow), told the Los Angeles Times that she “wanted to explore the books and bring the characters to life in a new and engaging way.”
Apparently, the pop-up is expected to change as it travels to different cities, swapping out previous installations for other fan favorites written by Suess – like a How The Grinch Stole Christmas-themed room once the holidays roll around. Other books that’ll be represented include The Sneetches and Other Stories as well as Horton Hears A Who.
The tour kicks off in Toronto on October 26 and is expected to travel across a number of U.S. cities like Seattle, Houston, and Boston. Though there isn’t an official line-up, it seems straight-up silly to imagine a national tour not making a pitstop in Los Angeles. But until we get a confirmation, we’re keeping our fingers crossed!
