Peabody Essex Museum Celebrates Dr. Seuss' 104th Birthday on March 2

"The more that you know, the more places you'll go. . ."

Children and adults will enjoy an afternoon of laughter and activity as the Peabody Essex Museum celebrates what would be Dr. Seuss' 104th birthday with a special program on Sunday, March 2.
A reading of Dr. Seuss' Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose teaches children the many ways animals depend on one another. Following the reading, children can participate in an art activity and create their own set of antlers. This interactive program provides kids with an afternoon of fun and educational activity, and gives parents an opportunity to spend quality time with their children in the Peabody Essex Museum's Art & Nature Center. The Art & Nature Center is an interactive exhibition space where visitors can explore ideas connecting art with nature. Salem's unique natural heritage is displayed through changing exhibitions and an exploration zone. The exhibitions in the Art & Nature Center showcase the global influences nature has on art and culture.
