“You thought it was only a dream...”

The OZ museum was built with a major grant from the State of Kansas and the generosity of the people of this small community, who also provided thousands of hours of volunteer time. The museum houses more than just memorabilia from the famous 1939 MGM musical starring Judy Garland! It encompasses earlier silent films, one of which starred none other than Oliver Hardy (Laurel and Hardy fame) as the Tin Man as well as "The Wiz" starring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson.

This is a great hour long stop on our road trip. My girls watched the original movie on the drive there which added to the experience. So much detail went into putting all the displays together. I really didn’t know anything about the author so I enjoyed learning about that. Got some great pics and some souvenirs.

Great for families or the enthusiast. 10 miles from 70 in a small quaint town. A cute place to stop for lunch.

It's a cool place. Learned a lot more about the author and behind the scenes of the movie

The photo on this site doesn't give it justice. It's such a unique and fairly quick stop to make. But a really fun stop nonetheless.

Wamego really is a one horse town, but the Oz museum was neat. It plays the movie and contains all of the books and memorabilia from the books and movie. Also, a few stores down is Toto's Taco's and The Oz Winery. The winery is pretty awesome!

Wamego has a really great 4th of July celebration including a fair and a parade. The Oz Museum puts on an annual event called Oztoberfest -- though it is the last weekend of September in 2013.

I love road trip tourist traps. This one did not disappoint. Wqtch the movie, see lots of old memorabilia, and learn more about the other books the author of Wizard of Oz wrote. And, there is a wine location nearby of you want to try Kansas wine?? The town is cute and the shops are fun too.

If you’re a fan of the movie it’s a mist go if you’re driving through or close by. The museum is small but charming. My youngest daughter loves it.
