Overview

This modest house in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, was home to Judy Garland for her first four years. Come see where "Baby Gumm" got her start. We have over 3000 collector pieces in our Land of Oz including (but not limited to) the carriage from the movie! We also have a Children's museum with many hands on activities for kids that will get their imaginations going. It sports a bakery, firehall, dress-up area, "sand" pit, water table, maze, treehouse and much more! If you are a teacher, visit our website today to plan a field trip! Many of our field trips qualify for a grant that helps you come for free!

Such an interesting museum at Judy Garland's childhood home. Besides Judy memorabilia, they have many Wizard of Oz items including the original carriage used in the movie. Adjacent to the Children's Discovery Museum. One entrance fee allows access to both museums.

Tons of memorabilia, including the original carriage that had the horse of a different color! Fun photo opportunities, and a nice selection in the gift shop!

This is a neat little place but when I say little I mean little. Takes all of five minutes to see it and get out the door.
