"The Wizard of Oz is a book & a movie propelled by magic & adventure & anchored in a search for identity. The 4 main characters – Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, & the Cowardly Lion – already have within themselves what they seek. It takes time & effort & their collective & mutual support to realize their innate abilities."
- John Fricke, OZ Historian
The OZ Museum is dedicated to all things OZ, offering an experience that attracts visitors from around the globe. The OZ Museum is home to exclusive exhibits featuring the unimaginable, from the earliest Baum books and OZ Parker Brothers board games to today's collectibles, which can be purchased from the Official OZ Museum Store. It is an enchanting experience appropriate for all ages.

So how did it all get started? Well, as Dorothy says, “there’s no place like home”. What words could be more appropriate when describing the dream of a small community that literally built a museum out of a rainbow's notion? It took the brains of a small group of leaders, the heart for what L. Frank Baum began in 1900 as a simple children's book, and the courage to take on the task of constructing a home for over 2,000 artifacts dating from 1900 to present day.
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. Today, the OZ Museum still heavily relies on the support of its loyal fan base and donors. To be a part of the OZ legacy, visit the membership page to learn how you can get involved and help preserve our tribute to the legendary world of OZ.

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.

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:
Follow the yellow brick road to Wamego, Kansas — home to the award-winning museum that showcases costumes and props from the original Wizard of Oz film; a phenomenal local winery featuring a variety of Oz-themed wines such as Squished Witch and Drunken Munchkin; and Wamego’s beloved Toto’s Tacoz, which cabinets a unique Mexican-style menu including entrees like Auntie Em’s Nachos. 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!
