If you loved reading Dr. Seuss when you were young or have young children who do, you’re going to want to check out The Dr. Seuss Experience this fall when it comes to the U.S.

Not only is the exhibit the perfect backdrop for a cool set of pics for your social media, but it will allow you to experience classic Dr. Seuss books like “The Cat in the Hat” and “The Lorax” in real life. It all takes place in an amazing 15,000 square-foot space with nine different rooms.

The collaboration between Dr. Seuss Enterprises and Kilburn Live opens in Toronto on Oct. 26, but will tour across the U.S. and Canada, including cities like Seattle, Houston and Boston.

The exhibit was confirmed via the official Dr. Seuss account on Instagram:

So what can you expect from visiting this exhibit?

Like many other pop-up installations, such as The Museum of Ice Cream and 29Rooms, The Dr. Seuss Experience has plenty of opportunities for selfies. Among the highly Instagrammable highlights are a fun-filled maze with suspended balloons based on “Oh, The Places You’ll Go,” a room with hot pink truffula trees from “The Lorax” and a working carousel from “If I Ran the Circus.”

Check out another sneak peek from the @experienceseuss Instagram account:

“Our goal is to have children shriek with joy,” Mark Manuel, CEO and founder of Kilburn Media, told the Associated Press.

The exhibit will reportedly change in every city, and during the holiday season, there will also be a “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”-themed room.

Other books that will be represented include “The Sneetches and Other Stories” and “Horton Hears A Who.”

“‘The Dr. Seuss Experience’ brings the extraordinary world of Dr. Seuss to life and we couldn’t be more thrilled to give everyone the opportunity to see and experience their favorite stories and characters as if they jumped right off the pages,” Susan Brandt, president of Dr. Seuss Enterprises, L.P., said in a statement.

And of course, you can expect to see plenty of your favorite Seuss quotes on the walls, like this one:
