Motoring Monday: Oz Museum in Wamego

“Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore." Everyone knows that line from The Wizard of Oz, and that Dorothy’s House is in Liberal. More than 2,000 artifacts are on display at the Oz Museum in Wamego. The museum features more than 100 years of Oz history ranging from a first edition L. Frank Baum book to current collectible pieces.

The museum features unique items such as original movie posters and rare autographs by the original actors playing Auntie Em and Uncle Henry, W.W. Denslow’s 24 color illustrated pages from the first edition of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900), original MGM 1939 movie production notes, replicas of many items like the jeweled ruby slippers and more.

Several themed events take place at the museum as well. For more information, go to the website at
