The OZ Museum is requiring masks be worn by those 5 years & older, while browsing Auntie Em's gift shop & exploring the museum. We see visitors from across the country & this is, in part, how we are able to keep the Emerald City doors open! Thank you for understanding.

Come Explore Over 2,000 OZ Artifacts

Experience the many exhibits the OZ Museum has to offer. You will find detailed historical facts about the movie and actors, OZ memorabilia, and so much more!

 

The OZ 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.

 

In fact, the OZ Museum also showcases over 100 years of OZ history, from the 1st edition L. Frank Baum books to the most current collectible pieces.

SHOWPIECES

At the OZ Museum you’ll journey down the yellow brick road and through the land of OZ. Our visitors’ favorite OZ artifacts and experiences include:

 

  • The hand jeweled ruby slippers, covered in over 3,500 Swarovski crystals, created by artist Jeffery Merrell to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the making of the movie.
  • A reproduction of the Haunted Forest sign that warns Dorothy and her companions to “turn back” in the now classic MGM film, The Wizard of Oz.
  • Doors and windows from a munchkin house, used on the set of the film, The Muppets’ Wizard of Oz. Its release date was May of 2005 and starred Ashanti as Dorothy Gale.
  • W.W. Denslow’s 24 color illustrated pages from the 1st edition of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900), along with exclusive OZ memoirs.
  • Various hand-painted character masks, even flying monkey miniatures used in the movie Wizard of Oz, and OZ toys such as a Woozy Doll made by L. Frank Baum.
  • TV, Broadway musical, and movie memorabilia, including original movie posters and rare autographs by original actors playing Auntie Em and Uncle Henry.
  • Rare OZ artifacts such as original MGM 1939 movie production notes, death certificate signed by original Munchkin Coroner, Ray Bolger’s (the original Scarecrow actor) passport, and gloves of Munchkin, Nita Krebs.

OZtoberFest

It only makes sense that one of the country’s largest Wizard of Oz celebrations happens right here, in the heart of downtown Wamego! This annual event each fall brings together Oz-lovers from around the world with live music, costume contests, food, arts and crafts, and exclusive vendors. Meet special guests including passionate collectors, Oz historians and authors, and enjoy the small-town aspect of this huge festival!
