My family and I drove out to this museum in fall of 2017. We enjoyed it, and it was worth the two hour drive. We also stopped at the winery down the street which was a lot of fun too!

The Oz Museum is an excellent insight into all the facts and details of the Oz movie and the life of the writer Frank Baum. Many films running at all times. It is a community effort in Wamego to have this museum.

This was worth the stop. We have wanted to stop here for years. I'm glad we finally took the time. It's worth it to see their special collection of Oz stuff from the movie and all things Oz.
