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.

Cool little stop and not far off the road to check out.

[Ivy&Nate, 08/02/2012]

The museum displays roughly 2,000 artifacts and features life-size dioramas of all the major characters in the film, from dead witches to flying monkeys. There's also a booth where you can stand and be buffeted by tornado-force winds.

Oz Museum

The Oz Museum was open on a Monday. Very interesting. Well worth a 10 mile detour off I-70, and easy to find.

Wizard of Oz Museum

A new museum in Wamego cashes in on the everlasting association of Kansas with the 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz. The Oz Museum, funded in part by a state tourism bureau grant, displays a large collection of Wizard of Oz memorabilia. And Kansas has renamed a highway that leads to Wamego as "The Road to Oz."

The Oz Museum joins other similarly focused attractions in Liberal and Sedan, KS , Kansas City, Aberdeen, SD, Grand Rapids, MI, and Chittenango, NY (Hometown of Oz author L. Frank Baum), and the closed Land of Oz, Beech Mountain, NC. And let's not forget Desoto, Kansas had a plan underway in 1999 to refurbish the old Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant into an Oz theme park.

Wamego is also where you'll find the Old Dutch Windmill.
