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.

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.
