Today we went on a sort of adventure which began with going to the Oz Museum in Wamego, KS. I do not know why this museum is placed in this town or even if it is a "sanctioned" Oz place but we decided to go check it out and be all touristy.
After the museum we met Nathan, my oldest, who drove up from Wichita for lunch in Manhattan and he asked about the museum. He said he had seen signs advertising it on a lot of his drive up. I said it was cute but not sure if it is "sign worthy". I'll leave that decision up to you my bloggy readers.
Wamego is a small town and very typical of Kansas towns. Here is what we saw as we drove up to the museum.
But probably the best surprise was getting out of the car and seeing the store NEXT to the museum:
Seriously. Toto's Tacoz!
I would have liked to check out this place across the street but we had a museum to tour.
Anyway. I'll share with you our adventure in Oz through pictures and you can let me know if this "museum" is "sign worthy".
A dress "similar" to one worn by Judy Garland in the movie on the left. And if you look very closely, you'll see a piece of fabric from the hem of her actual dress below the picture shown on the right.
And even an actual flying monkey figurine that was actually used for filming the movie.
But you will NOT see the Wizard.
