Oz Museum

Wamego is a small town in Kansas with a great marketing strategy.  We stayed there one night and saw their town's pamphlets.  I lived in a small town and I was immediately impressed with their brochures.  I was also excited to see that with the help of a grant from the state and volunteers from the town that they had become a town for fans of Wizard of Oz.  They built an Oz Museum downtown with displays for all the characters as well as memorabilia.  It was not a planned stop on our trip, but it was a fun addition.

If you go to their website, ozmuseum.com, you will find information about the museum as well as a scavenger hunt to use when you visit and a word search and a crossword puzzle that could be used if you are reading the book.  The museum costs $7 for ages 13 & up, $4 for ages 4-12 and free for ages 3 and under.  It is open March through October.

You can also check out other events and attractions in town at their website, visitwamego.com.  They have Oztoberfest the first weekend in October.
