I enjoyed my trip here. My wife and I specifically went out of our way while in Topeka to come here. There's just enough to keep you a couple hours, but not enough to have you stay all day.

We were amazed at the amount of memorabilia collected and arranged so well. The audio presentations explaining author Baum and more were appreciated. The dark forest arrangement was outstanding. Photo op in the "balloon" basket nice touch. The gift shop offers fun and collectible items including Baums books. Admission is minimal.

Cheesy imitations of movie props. Overpriced souvenirs. Disappointed all the way around. Didn't even finish looking at their displays. Not worth the time.

I was really surprised by how wonderful this place was. Most places with signs on the highway are ripoff tourist traps, but this is absolutely not. Not only is it an amazing collection of everything Oz (not just the movie, but everything you can imagine related to the Oz universe), they really cater to travelers. They offered a military discount... More

Adorable little small town charm with friendly faces and an adorable pit stop. The museum was small but cute. Absolutely worth the stop if you like the movie or even the plays

Some very rare historically relevent items. Well displayed and unique. Worth a stop off the highway or a day away

What a great find. I never watched the WIZARD OF OZ as a child, the tornado scared me right off. The displays that they have explains the details of the planning and who did what. That behind the scene interested me. I even sat and watched the ending of the movie that was running in a room, but I didn't... More

Small museum packed with lots of Wizard of Oz items. Interesting facts about the cast and the author of the books. I had a family member work on the movie so I was thrilled to discover this treasure. Several life size figures of the main characters. Photography encouraged.

We were heading out of Kansas and on our way to Missouri when we saw a sign advertising the OZ Museum. We figured we couldn't leave Kansas without stopping at the OZ Museum. When we pulled up, it looked very small for a museum and the tickets were very inexpensive. But once we started the tour, the place seemed to... More
