Oz Museum.

Oz Museum

Thousands of Wizard of Oz artifacts help cement the everlasting association of over-the-rainbow and Kansas. Several now-dead Munchkins have Walk-of-Fame-style hand and footprints in the sidewalk outside the museum's front door.

Oz Museum

This museum was a lot of fun. Really informative about the author and the novel and how he came up with the ideas. There are lots of vintage books and marketing products, then leading into the movie and other productions.

Also, there are Toto statues around town to find.

Tin Man.

Oz Museum

Definitely worth a side trip to break the monotony of Kansas! We were surprised how adorable this town is, like a real-life Mayberry. Better than the museum is the Oz Winery one block away! Great wine with fabulous names: "Drunken Munchkin" and "Twisted Witch," among others. They shut the town streets down one weekend in October for Oztoberfest. Sounded like a great time, complete with car show.

Don't miss the Yellow Brick Road, which goes down an alleyway on the opposite side of the street to the museum.

Tornado booth.

Oz Museum

This museum has a tornado booth so you can experience what Dorothy did. There's also a cool exhibit featuring Wizard of Oz memorabilia with a connection to the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks.
