Oz Museum

Oz Museum, Wamego, KS

Remember when the Wizard of Oz was aired on television every March? I can't begin to count the number of times that I rushed through my chores and into the house so I could watch it. I had no idea that over half of the movie was in color because we didn't have a color television until the early to mid-1960s.

Visiting the Oz Museum in Wamego, KS was a real treat. It is a small building and packed with memorabilia from around the world.

Most of the main characters were on display in separate areas:
Tinman
Cowardly Lion
replica of Dorothy's ruby slippers
The Dorothy and Toto display looked a bit forlorn, so I'll show you the replica Ruby Slippers that were on display.

It was fun to visit this museum and to relive some childhood memories. Do you have memories of watching The Wizard of Oz?

  1. As a young child, I could not understand why at the end of the movie everyone was telling Dorothy it was all a dream. Just like Dorothy, I was certain it was real.
