Whether you’re a die-hard fan, or want to introduce your children to the magic of The Wizard of Oz for the first time, Crown Center has some fun ways to celebrate the 75th anniversary of this iconic movie.
At 75 Years of Oz, Oh My!, kids can trace Dorothy’s footsteps through the Land of Oz. An adventure awaits on the path, which begins where Dorothy’s house plops down in Munchkin Land and ends where she clicks her ruby red slippers to return to Kansas. Along the yellow brick road, families can tour the enchanting world of the Munchkins, meet up with the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, as well as locate the Wizard in the Emerald City and sneak inside the Wicked Witch’s eerie castle. A section of the exhibit features a small sampling of local collector Jane Albright’s vast Oz collection.
