Visitor Tips and News About Twister The Movie Museum
Wakita was the town where Aunt Meg lived and then was destroyed about 2/3 the way through the movie Twister. This town has a tiny but fun museum dedicated to the filming that was done there as well as one of the original "Dorothy" mechanisms that were used in the movie![Rick Smith, 05/03/2003]
The movie "Twister" was filmed primarily in Wakita, OK (it's mentioned in the movie as the town where "Aunt Meg" lives). My parents visited it, as my mom is a huge tornado buff. There is a small museum that is kept locked (there is a couple that maintains the museum that will come and unlock it for you). The museum contains a lot of film memorabilia, including pictures of Bill Paxton with the locals (the cast and crew spent time w/the local people during the filming as they were there a while), one of the "Dorothy" machines and some other memorabillia. The couple and people of this very small town enjoy telling the stories of the movie that put them on the map.[Melanie Fortin, 10/13/2001]
