Wizard Of Oz Exhibit At Crown Center

Last weekend, we went to Crown Center to check out their new kids’ area exhibit, 75 Years of Oz, Oh My! According to their website, “There's no place like Crown Center to celebrate the 75th anniversary of America’s favorite movie, ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ Trace Dorothy's footsteps through the Land of Oz: from the moment her house plops down in Munchkin Land until she clicks her ruby red slippers to return to Kansas. Along the yellow brick road, families can tour the enchanting world of the Munchkins, meet up with the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, as well as locate the Wizard in the Emerald City and sneak inside the Wicked Witch’s eerie castle. A section of the exhibit will showcase Oz memorabilia from local Oz enthusiast Jane Albright.” The exhibit runs from Feb 1st – May 4th.

Looked like so much fun and have always love The Wizard of Oz. Can't believe it 75 years since the movie was first released, but still a timeless classic 😊

I need to take the girls. It looks like tons of fun!! I love the Wizard of Oz! I'm always a little nervous to do the exhibits at Crown Center because sometimes it gets super busy... but I think I'm going to go to this one!

I know what you mean. the day we went wasn't so bad, but it was also superbowl sunday! if you go on a weekday, esp. in the afternoon, it's probably great, but your girls probably nap then!

Dara said...

I'm not so sure...it's just displays of collectibles and wizard of oz stuff, if that makes sense!

Really cool. Looks like they had a blast. The expression on Gabbie's face in some of the photos was cracking me up :-)
